A phospholipid analytical technique was used to measure the amount of biomass attached to the surfaces of drinking water filter media. The method was reproducible and able to detect significant differences in biomass concentrations in different filters ant at various depths within filters. The amount of attached biomass decreased as filter depth increased, suggesting that most removal of natural organic matter occured at the top of the biofilters. The results show that granular activated carbon… CONTINUE READING
