This upcoming Thursday (Oct. 29, 2015), Professor Gary L. Emmert will be presenting recent research demonstrating how drinking water utilities can use the THM Rapid Response system to measure individual and Total THMs concentrations save operating expenses. He will discuss optimization of powdered activated carbon use at the Lebanon, TN Water Treatment Plant and our subsequent efforts on using the THM Rapid Response to calibrate empirical models and predict Total THMs concentrations up to one year later, within 2 ppb of the THM-RR measured THMs concentrations.

The presentation will be given at the annual fall conference (AFC15) of the California and Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association.
