The purpose of this project was to study the effectiveness synthetic resins and activated carbon to control trihalomethana precursors (THMP) in a finished drinking water which has the Missouri River as its principal source. As will be shown herein, a net reduction in THMP cannot necessarily by assumed when an adsorption process is being utilized.
