Disinfection Byproducts Compliance
With the success of the granulated activated carbon (GAC) in removing organic carbons, we are once again in compliance for disinfection byproducts. The GAC has been removing at least 40% of the organic carbons. These organics react with chlorine to form disinfection byproducts. The more organics we can remove prior to disinfection with chlorine, the less byproduct formation. This is great news for our water quality. We will continue to improve the GAC process in the coming months.
