Impact/Purpose:

to inform the public

Description:

This report documents the activities performed and the results obtained from the first six months of the arsenic removal treatment technology demonstration project at the Climax, MN site. The objectives of the project are to evaluate (1) the effectiveness of Kinetico’s Macrolite® pressure filtration process in removing arsenic to meet the new arsenic maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 µg/L, (2) the reliability of the treatment system, (3) the simplicity of required system operation and maintenance (O&M) and operator’s skills, and (4) the cost-effectiveness of the technology. The project also is characterizing water in the distribution system and process residuals produced by the treatment system.
