On January 18, 2001, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for arsenic at 0.01 mg/L. The EPA subsequently revised the rule text to express the MCL as 0.010 mg/L. The final rule requires all community and non-transient, non-community water systems to comply with the new standard by February 2006. Motivation to reduce the arsenic MCL was driven by the findings of health effects research. Over the past several years, numerous toxicological and epidemiological studies have been conducted to ascertain the health risks associated with low-level exposure to arsenic ingestion. Fundamental knowledge of arsenic chemistry and processes is important when a community is either looking to install a new treatment system or modify an old system to comply with the new arsenic rule. The purpose of this booklet is to provide engineering firms, utilities, and communities with information about treatment technologies for arsenic removal and design considerations for choosing treatment technologies.
