This report comprises the proceedings of the second of two international symposiums from the NATO/CCMS Drinking Water Pilot Project review of Advanced Drinking Water Treatment Technologies. The first was on 'Oxidation Techniques in Drinking Water Treatment.' Lectures, discussions and a summary paper provide a comprehensive survey on the practical application of adsorption techniques for removing organics from drinking water. Seventy-five authors for the U.S., Canada and six European countries presented studies on current practices and research results emphasizing granular activated carbon and biological activated carbon but also discussing powdered activated carbon and ion exchange resins.
