This report documents the activities performed and the results obtained for the EPA arsenic removal technology demonstration project at the Oak Manor Municipal Utility District (MUD) facility in Alvin, TX. The objectives of the project were to evaluate (1) the effectiveness of a Severn Trent Services (STS) Adsorptive Media System - Arsenic Package Unit (APU)-30S - with the use of SORB 33 (Trade Name) media in removing arsenic to meet the new arsenic maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 micro g/L, (2) the reliability of the treatment system, (3) the simplicity of required system operation and maintenance (O&M) and operator skills, and (4) the cost-effectiveness of the technology. The project also characterized water in the distribution system and process residuals produced by the treatment system.
