Seasonal changes in removal of natural organic matter (NOM) by drinking water biofilters are often attributed to temperature differences. Bench-scale sand biofilters treating NOM isolated from a surface water source were operated in parallel at 5, 20, and 35 °C to isolate the effect of temperature from other water quality and operational parameters, which also vary seasonally. The biofilter operated at 5 °C achieved significantly lower removal of NOM and the NOM fraction that reacts with… CONTINUE READING
