GENOTOXICITY STUDIES ON CARBON FILTERS USED IN WATER TREATMENT

Keywords: water treatment, granular activated carbon, genotoxicity of water, SOS Chromotest
Abstract: The study assesses the applicability of genotoxity tests to the detection of harmful metabolites of organic compounds present in carbon columns. The research was based on two water treatment plants. Genotoxicity was tested using the SOS Chromotest Kit. Laboratory tests were performed on dimethylsulfooxide (DMSO) extracts obtained from granular activated carbon (GAC). The SOS Chromotest (genotoxity test) proved to be very useful in monitoring harmful metabolites of organic compounds adsorbed on GAC. The values of the induction factor after the addition of pesticides exceeded 1.5, which indicated the presence of weakly genotoxic compounds in water.
