Steve Kvech, district engineer for VDH, said that the carbon filters are capable of absorbing most organic particles.
"It should start removing the material right away," Kvech said.
Delk added that trihalomethane levels could also become a concern, but Kvech said that the new filters should work for both HAA5 and THM.

Despite the apparent correlation, Steve Kvech, district engineer with VDH, said that the carbon filters are capable of absorbing most organic particles.
"It should start removing the material right away," Kvech said. "The carbon should have benefits for both [HAA5 and THM]."
Kvech added that another concern is the ability of the new filters to eliminate turbidity, which often contains microbes that can cause instant sickness.
"Carbon has been proven to work in certain situations," he said.
This was the first time in recent years Mineral's water was found to contain high levels of lead, according to Steve Kvech, VDH district engineer. Kvech added that the lead test is administered by the residents, so oversight can be difficult.
"It's not a water quality problem," Kvech said, adding that VDH tests the houses with the highest probability of lead contamination.
Residents are asked to provide information on their pipes, and older houses are tested more often, Kvech said, because of the lead pipes and faucets.
For the testing procedure, residents are provided detailed instructions for collection of the water, and are supposed to flush the water and wait for a minimum of six hours before collection. Waiting an excessive amount of time, he said, could result in an inaccurate test.
Kvech added that if residents have young children, that "it doesn't hurt to flush the tap for a minute or so before you drink."
The town plans to test 20 sites in the spring, with the priority going to residences.
"Until you run out of residents to sample, you don't use businesses," Kvech said.
