By locating useful characteristics and determining the perfect circumstances to meet ideal water quality criteria, this study seeks to improve the operation of a water treatment facility. The research comprises gathering data from personnel and exposure to system events, as well as from explicit and tacit knowledge sources. The problem at hand is a multi-objective, multi-criteria problem with many variables in spatial and temporal dimensions, requiring the use of powerful tools for analysis. All engineering problems have an objective function consisting of smaller sub-functions, typically in the form of cost or error minimization. To solve such problems, optimization methods based on natural patterns have been introduced, including genetic algorithms, evolutionary algorithms, and particle mass optimization. By optimizing the operation process of the water treatment plant, the quality of the water provided can be improved to meet standards set by organizations such as Iran 1053, WHO, and EPA. The study's findings could be used to implement changes to the plant's management and operation processes to achieve more ideal water quality conditions. Ultimately, the optimization of water treatment plant processes could have significant positive impacts on public health and well-being, as well as the environment.
