Water treatment plants at nine locations (10 plants) in Illinois and Iowa were studied to determine the characteristics and disposal practices for the sludge, brine, and backwash water containing radium (Ra) and/or barium (Ba). The treatment processes in these ten plants include iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn) removal (3 plants), lime softening (4 plants), and ion exchange (3 plants). Eight plants had radium and three plants had barium. The data are needed to determine whether special procedures are required to dispose of such wastes.
