Abstract
Prior to completion of new water treatment facilities in Duluth, Minnesota, contamination of the community's water supply by amphibole fibers led to widespread use of individual filtration systems in homes and public buildings. Laboratory tests of several types of cartridge filters, backed by extensive field monitoring of operating filter installations, revealed a number of performance problems and shed light on how to correct them.
