Description:

This report documents the activities performed during and the results obtained from the first 32 weeks of operation of an arsenic and antimony removal technology currently being demonstrated at the South Truckee Meadows General Improvement District (STMGID) in Washoe County, NV. The objectives of the project are to evaluate (1) the effectiveness of a granular ferric hydroxide (GFH) adsorptive media system in removing arsenic and antimony to meet the respective maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) of 10 and 6 µg/L, (2) the reliability of the treatment system, (3) the required system operation and maintenance (O&M) and operator’s skills, and (4) the capital and O&M cost of the technology. The project also characterizes the water in the distribution system and process residuals produced by the treatment system.
