A Bench Scale Special Study on DBP Precursor Removal

On November 06, 2014, the Optimization Team conducted a second special study to evaluate bench-scale removal of DBP precursors at the Western Fleming Water District in Ewing, KY. During this study, jar test simulations of the drinking water clarification processes were conducted, comparing TOC removal under the plant’s operational conditions and under alternative plant settings. The outcome of this and other special studies will impact the implementation of DBP optimization training and technical assistance approaches. (Ouro Koumai & Alison Dugan, US EPA, TSC)
