This document has been prepared to aid water utility owners, engineers, operators and municipal managers in understanding and dealing with excessive radionuclide levels in their water supply. It is intended to be used for defining the problem, developing or evaluating proposed solutions, and explaining to water consumers why radionuclides are controlled and what the approximate cost of control will be. This handbook is designed as a technical guide to radionuclide removal for those smaller size systems that have decided that radionuclide control is desirable. This document contains no regulatory policy and does not obligate systems to use any treatment or nontreatment technique to reduce radionuclide concentrations.
