Design Manuals for Arsenic Removal
This project’s objective was to develop design manuals for the removal of arsenic from drinking water by various treatment processes.
This project was conducted to answer question #4.2.1 of the Office of Research and Development’s Research Plan for Arsenic in Drinking Water: How effective are technologies for meeting a lower arsenic Maximum Contaminant Level?
This project also supports question #4.2.2: Are there cost-effective technologies for small systems?
With a focus on small systems technologies, several design manuals were developed on treatment processes that remove arsenic. These manuals incorporated arsenic removal information developed from other arsenic removal research projects. The first two manuals were on adsorption and ion exchange technologies. The third manual was on iron removal processes capable of removing arsenic.
Two draft design manuals have been prepared:
