Abstract
On September 17, 1968 three high-flow carbon adsorption method (CAM) samplers were installed at the Nitro, West Virginia Water Filtration Plant of the West Virginia Water Company. The purpose of the sampling program was threefold: one, to check the efficiency of the activated carbon filter bed in the removal of organic compounds as indicated by Carbon Chloroform Extract and carbon alcohol extract; two, to determine the length of time that highly effective removal of organics would occur; and three, to investigate the relationship between CCEhf and threshold odor during this type of treatment.
