|Toelichting (Engels)||The key objective of this project was to find the relation between river discharge, water quality, precipitation and water intake stops. For that, five intake stations which are part of the drinking water production companies: Vivaqua and Water-Link from Belgium; and WML, Dunea and Evides, from the Netherlands were considered. Their respective data on water quality, river discharge, precipitation and registered water intake stops were compared and statistically analyzed with the Pearson and Spearman Rank correlation test. A significant relation between discharge and water quality was found. Relations between intake stops and discharge and precipitation were significant for the Dutch drinking water companies. In addition, it was found that decision rules of each company have big influence in the frequency and duration of the intake stops.|
