There are various treatment processes that are used to remove iron and manganese from ground water for potable water supplies. Iron and manganese are typically found in groundwater in a dissolved state and the water may appear clear. While there are various less common treatment methods used (such as ion exchange), most treatment systems for iron and manganese oxidize the ferrous state (clear iron) to a ferric state so the solid particles can then be filtered out.
