Though proven to remove harmful organic chemicals from drinking water, granular activated carbon (GAC) has a reputation of being somewhat expensive. Calgon Carbon offers its Potable Water Service (PWS), making GAC use both highly economical and environmentally responsive. Through PWS, the GAC a utility needs to achieve quality standards is engineered, delivered, and installed on a convenient payment plan. When the GAC becomes saturated, the spent carbon is reactivated through Calgon Carbon's Custom Municipal Reactivation (CMR) process. Visit here to learn more.
