The number of water supplies with high uranium levels and the possibility of a national uranium regulation has stimulated greater interest in uranium removal technology. The paper summarizes recent information on the effectiveness of various methods for uranium removal from drinking water supplies. A variety of methods have been studied and reported upon, however, most of the information was developed from either laboratory or pilot plant studies. Very limited data exists for full scale treatment systems. Treatment methods discussed include conventional coagulation/filtration, lime softening, ion exchange, activated alumina, granular activated carbon, and reverse osmosis.
