Lake Kasumigaura is the second largest lake in Japan, located about 60 km north of Tokyo. It receives effluents from agriculture and municipal wastewater treatment plants. As it is a shallow lake, DOM production within the lake is also a cause of high DOM. Water supply from Lake Kasumigaura is challenging due to high DOM and bormide as it is located near the Pacific Ocean. To overcome these difficulties and reduce production of disinfection by-products, an advanced water treatment plant using a combination of AOP and MIEX is now under construction.
