Abstract The investigations described are carried out to analyse the microbiological processes in relation to the GAC characteristics and the removal of natural organic matter (NOM) in Granular Activated Carbon filters (GACFs) in water treatment. The main goal of the study was to obtain a qualitative description of the interactions between microbial activity and the surface characteristics of GAC. For this purpose the concentration of active bacterial biomass in GACFs, the identity and properties of the predominating bacteria and the effects of the adsorptive properties of GAC on biodegradation were studied
