Over the past eight years, Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) systems have been installed for treatment of VOC and pesticides. Several have seen multiple carbon replacement; changes in water quality; and experienced a variety of operational difficulties. The following GAC systems will be discussed: Village of Greenport - one 20,000 lb. GAC operating from 1980 to present for removal of aldicarb and carbofuran; Southold - use of GAC in series for aldicarb, carbofuran and DCP; Dix Hills Water District - three 20,000 lb. units in parallel for removal of DCP; and Suffolk County Water Authority - 4 separate well fields treating aldicarb, DCP, TCA, TCE, PCE and others, with a variety of operating experiences. Operational problems encountered with each unit will also be discussed.
