Haloacetic Acid in the drinking water
By Peggy Ayers


November 04, 2009

I am writing to let Dayle Amundson (and any other persons concerned with Haloacetic Acid in the water exceeding acceptable limits) know that according to the Minnesota Department of Health Haloacetic Acid can be removed from the drinking water using a Carbon Activated Filter. They can be installed as a whole house system or an under the sink system for use in drinking and cooking water. I do not know where these units can be purchased but I'm sure they can be found.

The entire article on this can be found on the net at the Minnesota Department of Health/Water treatment using carbon filters/GAC Information. Hope this helps.
