Abstract

Investigates the operational and performance-related features of GAC biofilters that operate without pre-ozonation and develops practical guidance and tools that can be used by water utilities considering this treatment technology. Builds upon the existing body of work, many of which were Foundation-funded research projects, by conducting a demonstration-scale evaluation of GAC filter adsorbers. Tailored collaboration partner: The Water Works and Sewer Board of the City of Birmingham. Published in 2010.
