Abstract

Provides information on the removal of DBP precursors, herbicides, and microbial contaminants as a function of bank filtration variables including raw water quality, filtration distance and velocity, temperature, and riverbed sediments. Reports on the mechanisms of DBP precursor removal in bank filtration process, and distinguishes the contribution of physical, physical-chemical, and biological processes to the removal.
