In the late 1970s when Bennington, Vermont first began to investigate how to treat its lead contaminated drinking water, a common method of corrosion control used in several European cities was the adjustment of pH in combination with the addition of sodium becarbonate to reduce metal contaminants. This CEM Message discusses Bennington's 1977 test of this process, the town's ten year experience with sodium bicarbonate/hydroxide treatment of its drinking water, and the potential of this treatment method to meet new Federal safe drinking water requirements.
