This document is the final report for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mine Waste Technology Program (MWTP) Activity III Project 20.Sele-nium Treatment/Removal Alternatives Demonstration Project. MWTP is a program developed through an Interagency Agreement (IAG) between EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy. MSE Technology Applications, Inc. (MSE) manages MWTP and owns/operates the MSE Testing Facility in Butte, Montana. MSE proposed and was granted funding for the Selenium Treatment/Removal Demonstration Project during the April 1999 IAG Management Committee Meeting. Selenium contamination originates from many sources including mining operations, mineral processing, abandoned mine sites, petroleum processing, and agricultural run-off. Kennecott Utah Copper Corporation's (KUCC) Garfield Wet lands-Kessler Springs site has a well characterized selenium contaminated artesian flow and was selected as the site for demonstrating various selenium treatment technologies. The contamination is of a low-level, high-volume nature that makes most treatment options expensive.
