The applicability of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) for process and costs optimization in drinking water treatment by coagulation, sedimentation and rapid filtration was investigated. The results showed that besides a considerable cost reduction, an improvement of process safety and stability can be expected. For further testing, the ANN will be installed at a water treatment plant for online coagulation control and process optimization.
