The objectives of this study were 1) to compare the water quality characteristics of six surface water storages located in southeast Queensland, to investigate how naturally occurring microlayers might adversly affect monolayer performance, and 2) to develop the minimum suite of water quality tests required for a water manager to select the monolayer product best suited for a specific water storage.
