Arsenic and other inorganic contaminants are being found in many small community and individual water supplies. One possible treatment solution for the inorganic contaminants that could be used in both the individual home water systems and small communities is point-of-use treatment. Point-of-use (POU) treatment units consisting of ion exchange, activated alumina and reverse osmosis have been evaluated by the U.S. EPA and each system has been found to be effective under certain operating conditions. Data from various field projects where point-of-use treatment devices have been used will be presented along with laboratory work on specific contaminant removal.
