Verification testing of the Pall Corporation Microza Microfiltration System for arsenic removal was conducted at the Oakland County Drain Commissioner (OCDC) Plum Creek Development well station located in Oakland County, Michigan from August 19 through October 8, 2004. The source water was groundwater from the two supply wells and the raw water for the verification test was withdrawn from the pressure tank at the site. Verification testing was conducted at the operating conditions specified by the manufacturer. The raw water, with a pH in the range of 7.0 to 7.4, was treated with sulfuric acid to lower the pH to a range of 6.6 to 7.0. Chlorine (bleach) was added to oxidize arsenic (III) to arsenic (V) and iron was added to coagulate the arsenic. When operated under the manufacturer's specified conditions at this site, with a flow rate of 6.3 gallons per minute (gpm), the Microza System reduced the total arsenic concentration from an average of 13 gamma g/L in the feed water (raw water after chemical addition) to below the detection limit of 2 gamma g/L in the filtrate (treated) water.
