Contamination of drinking water by organic chemicals has become a national problem of increasing concern. Small communities faced with the problem of removing these contaminants have limited resources and often cannot afford traditional treatment approaches. One approach which has the potential to be cost effective is treatment at the home, or point-of-use treatment. This report discusses the results of a study of point-of-use treatment of contaminated ground water in two small communities. Costs for purchase, installation, monitoring, and maintenance are documented and discussed. The effect of the point-of-use treatment on the drinking water quality is presented.
