Excess fluoride can be removed from potable water supplies by the activated alumina method. However, operating cost and reliability of this process are not well known. A simple modification to the conventional activated alumina treatment process increases the fluoride removal capacity of the alumina from the generally accepted level of 400 grains/ft to more than 2000 grains/ft of bed material. Thereby, operating cost becomes acceptable and has been documented by successful performance of plants in Desert Center, California and Vail, Arizona.
