This design manual is an in-depth presentation of the steps required to design and operate a water treatment plant for removal of excess arsenic from drinking water using the adsorptive media process. This treatment process is very reliable, simple and cost-effective. Several adsorptive media products are available in the marketplace that have successfully demonstrated their capability to remove arsenic from drinking water to levels well below the revised MCL, 0.010 mg/L. Other new products continue to be developed. The adsorptive media products are preferential for the removal of arsenic over other competing ions. Therefore, unless a water system requires treatment capability for removal of other suspended or dissolved contaminants, the adsorptive media treatment method merits evaluation.
