Abstract : A field study was conducted by the sanitary sciences division, energy and water resources laboratory, MERADCOM, at RMA to demonstrate the pilot-scale application of the carbon/polymer process in removing the contaminants, DIMP and DCPD, from Bog Seep Water. Employing the U.S. Army 420-GP carbon/polymer unit, the results indicate the process can effectively remove the two contaminants to undetectable values. However, the optimum carbon dosage (below 1,000 milligrams per liter carbon) are definitely available. -BKA
