Description

Groundwater Research for Treatment of Dissolved Organic Carbon and Disinfection By-Products Precursors Groundwater Research for Treatment of Dissolved Organic Carbon and Disinfection By-Products Precursors This proposed project will evaluate the potential for using groundwater recharge to remove dissolved organic carbon (DOC) with the goal of providing an alternative to the use of activated carbon in drinking water treatment plants. It is already well known that DOC may be removed during sub-surface flow through alluvial aquifers. The major technical obstacle to using groundwater recharge for treatment is the establishment of recharge capacity with sufficient sub-surface travel time to achieve the desired treatment. The primary objective of this project will be to identify the practical methods and economics associated with overcoming these obstacles. The second objective will be to identify the long list of secondary benefits which could include flow equalization for the CAP, reduced biofilm formation in distribution systems, taste and odor control and drought management.q
