Abstract
The report presents the results of pilot plant testing of two treatment methods capable of removing arsenic from drinking water; activated alumina and ion exchange. Using the Naval Air Station (NAS) drinking water (raw water arsenic concentration = 0.080 - 0.116 mg/l) for evaluating the efficacy of treatment under several different conditions the activated alumina and ion exchange systems were operated through three loading and regeneration cycles each. The major water quality factors affecting the removal of arsenic by these methods were pH of feed water, arsenic concentration, sulfate concentration, and alkalinity. The report presents estimates of capital and operating costs using the activated alumina method at optimum pH (5.5) for each of three small community systems currently using water from the same aquifer.
