The Drinking Water Research Division of EPA has a major role in evaluating the cost and performance of technology considered as part of drinking water regulations. The paper examines cost estimates for controlling various SOCs by GAC treatment using predicted use rates, and then evaluates the sensitivity of cost to variations in design and operating variables. Strategies for reducing the cost of GAC systems is discussed utilizing optimization of EBCT, in-series contactors versus a single contactor configuration, and off-site carbon reactivation.
