A closer look at coprecipitation, adsorption and ion exchange
Less than three months after the January 2006 deadline for public water systems to make operational changes to comply with the 10 ppb MCL for arsenic, the U.S. EPA is proposing a revision. The revision would allow systems serving 10,000 or fewer residents to have as much as 30 ppb of arsenic, three times the level of contaminants allowed under the new regulations.
The proposed revision is a direct response to complaints by small communities that cannot afford to comply with the new limit.

Water Quality Products asked Frank DeSilva, national sales manager for ResinTech, Inc. to share his thoughts on the potential market the new arsenic rule may create for POU/POE dealers.
The new arsenic rule takes effect on Jan. 23, 2006. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the new arsenic limit to 10 parts per billion (ppb), down from the previous limit of 50 ppb. Municipal water utilities are the major water treatment facilities that are faced with these changes. All purveyors of drinking water are affected, including public and private systems.
