Abstract
A small carbon filter was investigated to determine the effectiveness of removing color from surface waters at remote Air Force radar sites in Alaska. The raw water was characterized by color ranging from 50 to 90 units, pH near 6, temperature 5° Celsius, and low turbidity. When using carbon with a particle size high enough to provide low pressure losses, the color removed was less than 50 per cent. With powdered activated carbon, pressure losses and carbon carryover caused the system to be considered unacceptable even though color removal was high.

Abstract
A practical method was sought for removing the unacceptably high color and chlorine demand from the surface water source used at Kotzebue Air Force Site. Earlier laboratory tests of this water had indicated that treatment with 10 to 40 ppm chlorine would produce satisfactory water, with 95% color removal. Field tests were conducted at the site in 1962 and 1963. Treatment with 32 ppm chlorine reduced color from 70 cobalt units to 10-15 units in 24 days, with a final chlorine residual of 2 ppm. Treatment with 21 ppm chlorine reduced color to 20 units in 82 days, at which time the chlorine residual was zero and recoloration began. Although results of the field tests did not entirely agree with laboratory findings, the 32 ppm chlor:ine dose was found to be a satisfactory, simple and practical method of treatment. Reduction of chlorine residual to an acceptable level occurred within 24 days following treatment.

Abstract
A continuous upward flow sedimentation unit was developed to test surface waters at remote U. S. Air Force radar stations in Alaska for the presence of eggs of Echinococcus. Chlorination employed at these water supplies is not an effective protection. Many animals in these areas are infected with the tapeworm, and man can serve as a host for the larval form. Diagnoses of echinococcosis in the native population caused concern by the Air Force for health of Air Force personnel. Lack of early disease symptoms and unreliability of clinical tests necessitate physical surveillance of water supplies. Laboratory tests validated methodology. One field test showed negative results. Further tests are recommended.
