Suggested reduction of the maximum contaminant level for trihalomethanes (THMs) could force many utilities to change disinfectants or to alter treatment processes. Faced with the possibility, more utilities are considering granular activated carbon for trace organics removal. The report presents performance and cost data, collected from five sites, for the removal of THMs, their precursors, and surrogates.
