Robustness of MIEX treatment with respect to seasonal variations in water quality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The goal of this work was to evaluate the long term performance of bicarbonate-form MIEX resin (MIEX-HCO3) under seasonal changes in water quality. The St. Johns River (SJR) was selected as the test site because it has high concentrations of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and bromide, and is being considered as a drinking water source. Twenty-two jar tests were conducted using MIEX resin and water samples collected approximately every other week from the SJR. The same batch of MIEX resin was used for the entire study by regenerating the resin after each jar test. The results showed that MIEX removed a substantial fraction of DOC and UV-absorbing substances under changing water quality conditions. 2011
