As Federal MCLs are developed for PFAS, the more stringent limits seek to track the contaminant to the smallest particle which is not parts per million, or even parts per billion, but to less than 10 parts per trillion. To get an understanding of just how small one part per trillion really is, we first need to grasp the vast size of the cardinal number trillion.   May_2022-Just_how_much_is_a_part_per_trillion

Those wells on the township’s eastern side were shut down last summer. Well 8 had elevated levels of radium, and 7, near Well 8, was shut down after the most recent round of state testing. The Holly Oaks Treatment Facility was built back in the 1960s. “It was taken off line last year after slightly elevated radium levels. The well […]

Pilot Program – On-site Pilot Studies Demonstrate Effectiveness of Processes

Pilot tests conducted at facilities across the U.S. consistently show that WRT treatment processes successfully reduce radium or uranium in drinking water to well below the Maxiumum Contaminant Level (MCL). WRT can provide self-contained portable, free-standing pilot units or mobile, trailer-mounted units, depending on specific testing needs at each site. Services include unit delivery, setup and operating instruction. Upon completion of the pilot study, WRT will prepare a Pilot Study Report and a detailed cost proposal for a full-scale system.

Portable Exchange System

The WRT Portable Exchange Systems are designed for radium or uranium removal applications from 5 to 100 gallons per minute. Z-88® Radium or Z-92® Uranium removal systems can be utilized in any new or existing potable water system. Water passes through treatment vessels where the contaminant is removed. When the treatment media is ready for replacement, the portable treatment vessels are removed from the circuit and replacement vessels are provided and installed on a cost per exchange basis. WRT disconnects the used vessels, installs the replacement vessels into the system, places it back into operation, and provides for the safe […]
