Arsenic is classified by the US EPA as a carcinogen, making it highly toxic and dangerous if consumed. When you have arsenic in your drinking water, having a water filtration system is a necessity. At American Water, our arsenic removal systems can remove the harmful elements in you water, providing you with safe, clean water.
Our experienced technicians work with our customers to find the best solutions for your water quality. Before installing an arsenic removal system, we first determine the type and amount of arsenic in your water supply through water testing. Your testing results help our team to determine the right solution for your needs.
If Arsenic is Inorganic
When the arsenic in your water supply is tested as inorganic, it can be removed or reduced by conventional water treatment processes. At American Water, we offer our customers five different arsenic removal options, including:
- Reverse Osmosis
- Activated Alumina
- Ion Exchange
- Activated Carbon
If the Arsenic is organic
When arsenic is found in your water supply to be organic, we recommend It be removed through oxidation of the organic material and subsequent coagulation. Our experienced technicians can provide you with the necessary materials or supply you with installation services to safely remove or reduce the organic arsenic from your water supply.
Arsenic has been linked to many health risks. Reducing and eliminating the content in your water is incredibly important to your overall well being. The state of Michigan set the standard at .010 ppm (parts per million) or 10 ppb (parts per billion) and recommends not using your water if your arsenic levels are higher than the recommended standards.
