||EPA established drinking water regulations for ten inorganic substances and radionuclides that became effective on June 24, 1977. As a result of these new regulations, many communities may be required to construct new treatment facilities or to modify existing ones. This paper on cadmium, lead, and silver is the third of a series that reviews existing treatment technology for meeting the EPA drinking water regulations. The effectiveness of conventional coagulation, lime softening, ion exchange, activated carbon, reverse osmosis, and electrodialysis for the removal of the contaminants are discussed. The information consists of data from a general literature review and EPA's recent work on metals removal by conventional treatment.
