Groundwater Remediation

Source: 3M Separation and Purification Sciences Division

Good quality groundwater is an important natural resource. It provides drinking water for the public as well as process water for industrial applications. Groundwater can become contaminated through a number of ways including improper handling of process chemicals or disposal of wastes.

Although the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (Clean Water Act) now mandates regulation of industrial and municipal discharges, many bodies of water have become polluted over time prior to such environmental legislation. Municipalities are required to remediate ground water to reduce public and wildlife exposure to dangerous toxins, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, fertilizers, and pesticides. This Customer Application Brief (CAB) focuses on the importance of filtration in the remediation of polluted groundwater.
