The purpose of these spreadsheets is to assist public water systems (PWSs) in reporting the results from the Information Collection Rule (ICR) treatment studies to EPA. A PWS must submit one Final Treatment Study Report for each treatment study conducted by a treatment plant operated by the PWS. The Final Treatment Study Report is due in its entirety no later than July 14, 1999. The ICR for Public Water Systems (Subpart M of the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations) requires public water systems that meet certain applicability criteria to conduct disinfection byproduct (DBP) precursor removal studies, referred to as treatment studies. These treatment studies are intended to provide cost and performance data on granular activated carbon (GAC) and membrane processes for meeting proposed DBP regulations. Specific Excel spreadsheets are provided for both GAC and membrane technologies using either pilot- or bench-scale testing approaches. The user guide contains guidance on the preparation of the hard-copy Treatment Study Summary Report which will accompany the Data Collection Spreadsheets in the Final Treatment Study Report. Microsoft Excel spreadsheets are provided for the following: GAC RSSCT Bench-Scale Studies; GAC Pilot-Scale Studies; Membrane RBSMT Bench-Scale Studies; Membrane SEBST Bench-Scale Studies; Membrane LT-SEBST Bench-Scale Studies; and Membrane Pilot-Scale Studies
