The objective of this research is to assist water utilities in achieving maximum simultaneous removal of multiple chemical contaminants using biofiltration without compromising the existing objectives of the filtration process. A biofiltration multi-contaminant removal guidance manual was developed, along with a companion Multi-Contaminant Removal Matrix that provides a snapshot of anticipated multi-contaminant removal ranges given various sets of operating and design conditions. Published in 2018.
In addition to being included in the report, the Multi-Contaminant Removal Matrix and Appendix A are posted below, under Project Papers.
An article focused on this project was published in the journal Chemosphere.
