Phenol is usually removed by oxidation. Fenton's reagent (peroxide + iron ), peroxide/UV, and other strong oxidizers are all capable of destroying phenol under the right conditions.

If the phenol is very dilute, you may want to consider using a sythetic adsorbent. There is a family of styrene-divinyl benzene polymeric adsorbents that have a high affinity and capacity for phenols and can be regenerated with dilute sodium hydroxide and then batch treated by oxidation to destroy the phenol.
