Arsenic

 

Arsenic - What is it?
Arsenic is a naturally-occurring element in groundwater throughout the world. It has no taste, color or odor, but its presence in drinking water can cause serious health effects.

In addition to naturally occurring arsenic, which is by far the largest source, arsenic can also occur due to pesticides, mining, and computer chip manufacturing.

EPA Fact Sheet: Drinking Water Standard for Arsenic

EPA Regulations - Arsenic in Drinking Water
Because of the negative health effects of ingesting arsenic, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization have established a Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 10 parts per billion in drinking water. In the USA, compliance with the EPA limit is required by January 2006.

Over five percent of the community water systems in the United States which serve over 10,000,000 people, require treatment to meet the new limit.

Arsenic Removal
For highly efficient, cost-effective arsenic removal treatment from drinking water, ADI's patented MEDIA G2 water treatment technology is capable of reducing arsenic levels to less than 2 ppb, even from concentrations as high as 1200 ppb. The MEDIA G2 technology has treated hundreds of millions of gallons of arsenic contaminated water since 1999 with this arsenic adsorption technology. Communities around the world are turning to ADI International to meet EPA and WHO guidelines.
