Case Study

Full Scale Installation: City Of Brookfield, Wisconsin

Source: WRT - Water Remediation Technology

WRT’s award-winning system has been in operation in Brookfield, WI since 2007 to remove radium from two water wells. Brookfield, which is located 15 miles west of Milwaukee, is under a 20-year contract to have the radioactive contaminant removed to a level below EPA requirements, ensuring that the city has safe drinking water.

WRT will also be responsible for the environmentally safe handling and removal of the radium from the treatment site to a licensed facility, preventing future contamination in Brookfield. The installation of WRT’s system in Brookfield was awarded the 2007 Environmental Project of the Year for projects under $2 million by the Wisconsin section of the American Public Works Association.
