COONFARE, C. T., A. S. CHEN, AND L. WANG. ARSENIC REMOVAL FROM DRINKING WATER BY ADSORPTIVE MEDIA - USEPA DEMONSTRATION PROJECT AT DESERT SANDS MDWCA, NM SIX MONTH EVALUATION. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-05/079, 2005.
This report documents the activities performed during, and the results obtained from, the first six months of the arsenic removal treatment technology demonstration project at the Desert Sands Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Association (MDWCA) facility in Anthony, NM. The objectives of the project are to evaluate the effectiveness of Severn Trent Services (STS) Arsenic Package Unit-300 (APU-300) SORB 33" media in removing arsenic to meet the new arsenic maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 mg/L, the reliability of the treatment system, the simplicity of required system operation and maintenance (O&M) and operator's skills, and the cost-effectiveness of the technology. The project is also characterizing water in the distribution system and process residuals produced by the treatment system
