The monograph provides information on treatment processes for potable water supplies and their costs. It is intended as a general planning document, giving the user general concepts on what treatment methods are available to remove specific contaminants or reduce them below the limits required or recommended by the 1974 Federal Drinking Water Standards and Guidelines. These contaminants may be physical, biological, radiological, or chemical. General cost estimates for the removal or reduction of contaminant levels can be made by using the cost estimation curves and procedures outlined in the monograph.
