Abstract:

This report is a summary outlining efforts in the area of carbon treatment of ground water during 1979. The following observations and studies were involved 1 A requirement to evaluate the north boundary treatment system was established when higher rate of carbon usage than anticipated was encountered during the treatment of north boundary ground water, 2 A study was initiated to determine the ability of regenerated carbon to extract contaminants from the ground water in the absence of a multi-media prefilter, 3 A comparison study was made between the capacity of regenerated carbon to remove dimp from the north boundary group water versus the capacity of regenerated carbon to remove dimp from selected well waters as observed in the original 1977 pilot study, 4 Observations were made for the breakthrough of secondary contaminants through the carbon bed, 5 A single carbon column similar to the columns used in the original pilot study were installed slip-stream to the full scale calgon system to evaluate these factors, 6 Comparison studies were made. -BKA
