The applicability of using pilot columns to predict the full-scale performance of granular activated carbon columns is evaluated. Pilot-scale data for total organic carbon and 1,2-dichloroethane are directly compared to full-scale data for sites at Jefferson Parish, LA and Cincinnati, OH. Pilot column results for atrazine and cis-1,2-dichloroethene are also presented. The applicability of model predictions and how they can be used to design pilot-column studies is also discussed.
