This report summarizes the pilot-scale evaluations conducted at the EPA Test and Evaluation (T&E) Facility between April 2005 and January 2007 to investigate removal of sodium arsenite, mercuric chloride, Bacillus subtilis, diesel fuel (No. 2), and chlordane from water distribution systems. The report covers the purpose of the study, detailed experimental test conditions and methods, analytical results, and observations. It also incorporates technical reviewer comments from American Water Works Association Research Foundation (AwwaRF) and Sandia National Laboratories on the draft summary reports that Shaw prepared for contaminant-specific evaluations conducted under this Work Assignment.

Contents Notes
One of EPA's more important challenges in dealing with a contamination threat is how to treat, contain, and dispose of contaminated water. Depending on where the contaminant is introduced, this may involve actions within source waters, drinking water treatment plants, distribution systems, or points downstream. Any material (including the water) may need to be disposed of properly. Furthermore, the physical infrastructure of the water distribution system will require decontamination before it is reused. To evaluate the efficacy of various decontamination methods, a series of pilot-scale tests were conducted, using the pipe loop system located at the T&E Facility, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
