Summary
Biofiltration is capable of reducing DBP precursors and other contaminants in drinking water treatment. However, conventional polishing biofilters are prone to biofouling due to low nutrient levels. A roughing biofilter earlier in the process was evaluated as an alternative. Lab-scale experiments used a crystal violet (CV) assay for quantifying biofilm establishment on two roughing biofilter media: a porous ceramic ring and a honeycomb-style trickling filter media. Limitations with the CV assay for this application were identified. Pilot-scale roughing biofilters were installed at a drinking water plant for 70-days and operated to maximize biofilter performance. Biological activity was confirmed as CV absorbance increased from 0.085 to 0.400 AU. However, correlations of biological activity with water quality improvements were not possible, prompting several suggestions for future research including increasing the empty bed contact time (filter depth), starting up the filters in a laboratory setting, and monitoring changes in the organic carbon composition
