Arsenic & Iron Removal for Public Water Systems

It has been estimated in a national arsenic occurrence survey of drinking water supplies that as many as 35 to 40% of U.S. public water systems have arsenic above the maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 parts per billion (ppb), and have co-occurrence of iron above the secondary MCL of 0.3 mg/L. This presents an interesting challenge for small systems, which may or may not have any treatment in place for either iron or arsenic to meet their respective MCLs.
