In order to achieve an efficient and economical advanced drinking water system, the relationship between operating conditions, membrane filtration flux and water qualities was examined by using a pilot plant consisting of ozonation facility, ozone resistant microfiltration (MF) module and granular activated carbon (GAC) tower. It was found that keeping residual ozone of more than 0.3 mg/L on the membrane surface is necessary in order to obtain a high membrane filtration flux. Withy ozone dosage of 3 mg/L by ejector and filtration by dead-end mode, this new system provided a high membrane filtration flux of more than 5 m3/m2/day. Quality of the produced water from the GAC tower was meeting the drinking water standard.
