This report documents the activities performed during and the results obtained from the arsenic removal treatment technology demonstration project at Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) at Klamath Falls, OR. The objectives of the project were to evaluate: (1) the effectiveness of three point of entry (POE) adsorptive media (AM) systems, all manufactured by Kinetico, and two types of point of use (POU) AM units, one manufactured by Kinetico and the other by AdEdge, in removing arsenic to meet the maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 microg/L, (2) the reliability of these POE/POU treatment systems/units for use at small water facilities (3) the required system operation and maintenance (O&M) and operator skill levels, and (4) the capital and O&M cost of the technology. The project also characterized the water in the distribution system and residuals generated by the treatment process. The types of data collected included system operation, water quality, process residuals, and capital and O&M cost.
