Enjoy a video presentation about Groundwater Treatment!
Operators of groundwater treatment plants will find much helpful information pertaining specifically to groundwater sources and treatment, compiled and organized for ease of use in this handbook.
In the past, it seemed as if groundwater treatment regulations
were an afterthought to surface water regulations. Today, water treatment
professionals have a much better understanding of the vulnerability of
groundwater supplies to various contaminant threats. This understanding is
reflected in a broader regulatory framework for groundwater. This book is designed to answer many operational questions regarding groundwater
treatment. Written in a question-and-answer format, Treatment Technologies for Groundwater provides all
the information needed to choose appropriate treatment
and operate a groundwater treatment plant. It provides a handy
information source on regulations, commonly used treatment
technologies, disinfection, and corrosion control.
Additionally, it provides best practices and procedures for removing various substances from groundwater: iron, manganese, arsenic, hydrogen sulfide, nitrate, uranium, radium and gross alpha, barium, and organic compounds.
