As analytical testing of community and individual homeowner wells has intensified, more drinking water contamination has been identified. In some instances, this contamination can be attributed to agricultural practices. Of special concern are those locations where no community treatment system can be provided. Examination of various treatment methods applicable to both individual and small community situations that are cost-effective in removing these contaminants will address an area of concern that is gaining more attention. In situations where multiple contaminants, especially low moledular weight compounds, are found, pilot studies similar to the study with proposed treatment systems are recommended to more accurately predict the performance of larger units.
