The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has long regulated radium in drinking water, but in December 2000 the EPA lowered the maximum allowable levels for radionuclides. As a result, water utilities across the country retested for radium. Those that found radium contamination exceeding new EPA standards faced a three-year deadline to comply—by either removing the radium to improve the quality of the existing water supply or finding alternative water sources.

There are many applications today that offer potential new business for water treatment dealers because of increasingly stringent drinking water requirements. These applications include the removal of arsenic, nitrate, perchlorate, fluoride, radium, uranium and other emerging contaminants. The removal of these contaminants may be required by local, state or federal regulations.
