West Virginia American Water Update: Carbon Filter Change-Out Project Halfway Complete
Work has continued this week in the second 8-filter wing with carbon already removed from two more filters and virgin carbon in its place by later today. Prior to being put back into service, all filters are conditioned, monitored and tested to meet all drinking water standards.
West Virginia American Water began changing out nearly 500 tons of Granular Activated Carbon in the plant’s 16 filters on April 1. The project is expected to take approximately nine weeks, subject to operational conditions. The Kanawha Valley plant continues to produce water that meets all drinking water standards and CDC guidance. Water samples continue to be taken every four hours and tested for MCHM. All samples have been non-detect at two ppb since late February.
