||Several small systems and individual homeowners have been faced with the task of treating their groundwater that has been contaminated with various organic contaminants. Contamination is such that the locations described in this presentation have been designated Federal Superfund sites undergoing emergency or remedial actions. These sites have utilized point-of-entry water treatment devices to treat their groundwater. The devices used include: single and dual granular activated carbon (GAC) columns; air stripping in series with GAC; and ozone/UV followed by GAC. Cost (capital and operating) contaminant removal performance, GAC breakthrough and disinfection byproduct formation will be discussed for several Superfund or state led cleanup actions.
