The presentation entitled “Small Community and Household Water Systems Research on Removal of Metals and Pesticides from Drinking Water Sources” provides treatment alternatives for removal of metals and pesticides from surface and ground waters before human consumption. The presentation includes an overview of U.S. EPA Test and Evaluation Facility small drinking water systems research. There is also detailed information on three case studies 1) Selection of Household Systems for the Removal of Metals from Well Water in Washington County, Missouri, USA, 2) Development of Community and Household Water Systems for Pesticide Removal Using Composite Cartridges and UV Disinfection and 3) An Overview of the Grainger Challenge Prize for Sustainability for Removal of Arsenic from Tube Wells in India, Nepal and Bangladesh.
