||Pilot plant research conducted in 1974 at Duluth, Minnesota, demonstrated that asbestiform fiber counts in Lake Superior water could be effectively reduced by municipal filtration plants. During the study, engineering data were also obtained for making cost estimates for construction and operation of both granular and diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration plants ranging in size from 0.03 to 30 mgd. In Appendix D, all graphs of filter head loss and effluent turbidity as functions of the number of hours of filter operation are given. These graphs and the individual filter run data presented in Appendix C could be used to evaluate filter performance under circumstances in which the production of clear, potable water is the goal, rather than the removal of asbestiform fibers.
