A Modular Treatment Solution

Elevated levels of arsenic, iron and manganese prompted Brandywine Elementary School in Greenfield, Ind., a small town just east of Indianapolis, to seek a treatment solution for the school’s drinking water. The water system is served by one well that provides drinking water for approximately 330 students in kindergarten to fifth grade.

In July 2009, Ladd Eng. Inc. contacted AdEdge Technologies Inc. to provide a proposal for the Brandywine Elementary School in the Southern Hancock School District.

Arsenic Advances

Arsenic and its compounds have been known to be toxic for millennia. Arsenic trioxide (As2O3), often referred to as white arsenic, was a favored poison in the Middle Ages because it had little odor or taste, enabling it to be easily incorporated into the food or drink of a victim. As little as 300 mg can be fatal to an average person.

Value-Oriented Water Treatment

Giving customers value is what most retailers and wholesalers are doing during the economic slump. With rising costs for products and shipping, it is difficult to maintain sales and acquire profits. Cutting costs without cutting corners can be difficult as well. Sizing a water system and applying the correct treatment system can be a daunting task because salespeople must take into consideration that the customer wants the best possible water treatment at the lowest possible cost.
