Abstract

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has recently increased regulation of arsenic in drinking water. As a result, many public and private water systems in Alaska are out of compliance. The communities served by these systems are searching for cost-effective, proven solutions to their arsenic contamination issues. Research conducted over the past two years at the University of Alaska Anchorage, School of Engineering has identified absorptive media technology as a viable solution to arsenic removal from groundwater sources in the Anchorage area. Using a Rapid Small Scale Column Test this project will focus on evaluating the arsenic absorption capacity of the media used in an absorptive media system manufactured by Adedge Technologies. The collected data will be analyzed and used to predict media life in a full scale system. Ultimately this project will not only provide the community with proven arsenic removal technologies, but also provide them with implementation, operation, and maintenance cost for these systems.
