An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of synthetic resinous adsorbents for removing color and organics from water supplies. Four different resins were tested with water from three individual sources. The results show that synthetic resinous adsorbents were effective in removing color and organics. In general, the resins performed best from moderate concentrations of color and organics. Relatively good color removal was achieved on the sewage treatment plant effluent. The use of synthetic resinous adsorbents appears to hold promise for treatment of relatively small water supplies containing color and organics. The economics of such systems needs further evaluation.
