This report complies and summarizes design criteria, performance data, and cost information from twenty-two operating granular activated carbon (GAC) installations. These plants produce municipal water for drinking, treat municipal and industrial wastewaters, and process food and beverage products. It provides guidance in estimating the cost of GAC treatment for public water supplies. The manual is intended for use in connection with a previous series of EPA reports on 'Estimating Water Treatment Costs' to obtain project-specific cost estimates. This manual is not a design manual. Rather, it describes how to obtain design criteria for water systems.
