Abstract:A study was conducted
at a water treatment plant to optimize parallel
rapid gravity biofilters for dissolved organic matter (DOM) removal.
The biofilters treat urban and agriculturally impacted river water
using a commercial non-adsorptive, expanded-clay filter medium. The
study aimed to locate the optimal operating conditions via experimental
manipulation of the biofilter empty bed contact time (EBCT) during
full-scale operation at the plant. During a two-month experiment,
contact times in four parallel biofi… Show more
