Description Board of Water Supply Grant/Contact No. B368 A series of thirty separate experimental laboratory benchscale runs were conducted in which concentrations of EDB and DBCP in water, ranging from 2,170 to 10,000 parts per trillion (ppt), were treated by passing various quantities through both standard and fine-grained Calgon and Darco granulated activated carbon (GAC). The results of the experiments indicate that Calgon is more efficient than Darco in removing EDB and DBCP, that fine-grained GACs are more efficient than standard GACs, that...
