The report presents background and history of water quality, the basis for design and nine months of actual operating data for a small, full-scale strong-base ion exchange system that is used to remove uranium from a water supply serving a school in Jefferson County, CO. Information is also presented on the effectiveness of regeneration, the gamma radiation profile of the system, and the capital and O/M costs of the system. Because of no on-site disposal system, the regeneration wastewater is hauled away to a school district wastewater treatment plant at a cost of $2.40 per 1,000 gallons of treated water.
