Alkalinity = 68 mg/L

Non-Carbonate hardness = 92 mg/L as Ca CO3

Total Mg2+ = 15mg/L

Assume that it is possible to remove all but not 35 mg/L of hardness with lime and treated water to have a total hardness of 80mg/L. Determine the gravity of line required for treatment of per million lt of raw water, assuming that sodium Alkalinity is absent (round off to one decimal place)
