Drinking Water Filtration Case Studies and White Papers

  1. California Dreamin’? Pilot Study Makes Treating Arsenic, Manganese And Iron A Reality
    10/12/2018

    The City of Paramount conducted a pilot study for arsenic, manganese and iron treatment system at their Well 15 site. The onsite pilot test was designed to demonstrate the performance of the Loprest Water Treatment Company treatment process proposed for the new treatment plant.

  2. Pilot Test For Manganese Removal Using Manganese Greensand
    10/11/2018

    Loprest has been designing and fabricating manganese removal systems using manganese greensand for over forty years. Drawing on that experience; filtration rates, run times, backwash procedures, chemical dosage rates, etc. are all established by theoretical calculations and history. Therefore, Loprest’s goal in this pilot study was to conduct uninterrupted operation per bid testing procedures and document the results.

  3. Is Coagulation Followed By Filtration Viable To Remove Arsenic When Raw Water Arsenic Levels Are High?
    10/9/2018

    The objective of the pilot study was to demonstrate “proof of concept” if coagulation followed by filtration was a viable technology to remove arsenic in water from Well No. 6 when raw water arsenic levels are so high, >70 ppb. Preparations were made to reduce the pH of the raw water if it was required. Also, two unique arsenic adsorptive medias were evaluated as a final polishing step to the effluent of the coagulation/filtration process.

  4. Removing Iron, Arsenic and Manganese To Meet California Regulations
    10/9/2018

    Water from Well 19 and 20 in Sacramento, California area was high in manganese and arsenic. Due to the high levels, the wells were not being used to supply municipal water to the District. Each facility is planned to initially produce and treat approximately 600 gpm with a future expansion capacity to 1200 gpm.

  5. A Pilot Study Involving Three Different Treatment Media
    10/8/2018

    As part of a feasibility study for arsenic treatment at an elementary school in California, a pilot study was conducted to test the performance of three different treatment media: (1) greensand and anthracite, (2) standard sand and anthracite, and (3) manganese dioxide.

  6. Arsenic Removal Pilot Study Meets California Standards
    10/3/2018

    Well water from several locations in Ridgecrest, California area is high in arsenic, carbonates and pH. Due to the high levels of arsenic, some wells are not being used to supply municipal water to the city of Ridgecrest and were shutdown. Due to local demand, the feasibility of treating these wells to remove most of the arsenic before blending with water from other wells is being investigated.

  7. Four Day Pilot Study For Iron And Manganese Does The Trick
    10/2/2018

    The City of Southgate, California wanted to investigate the effect of replacing the existing media in their Well 27 treatment plant. The plant would not reduce the incoming manganese levels to below the 50 μg/l MCL. It has been theorized that the existing media has become fouled beyond cleaning during the one year plus of non-operation while contained in the filter tank full of water. That environment could produce a likely source of biological and other sources of fouling.

  8. Pilot Test For Arsenic, Color And Iron Shows Great Results
    10/1/2018

    The City of Riverdale was running into issues with arsenic, color and iron treatment system at their Well 4 site, so they conducted a pilot test with the help of Loprest.

  9. Iron, and Manganese Arsenic Pilot Study In The Golden State
    10/1/2018

    This report summarizes results and conclusions of a groundwater treatment pilot test program. This pilot test program was undertaken to demonstrate the effectiveness of water treatment products that employ oxidation and filtration to remove iron, manganese and arsenic to levels well below MCL’s. Operating data collected during the study will be used to confirm the design of fullscale facilities.

  10. Groundwater Treatment Pilot Test Program Proves Successful In California
    9/12/2018

    Iron, manganese, arsenic and hydrogen sulfide are indigenous to numerous groundwater aquifers. With the exception of arsenic, these constituents are more prevalent in deeper aquifers that are devoid of dissolved oxygen. This report summarizes the results and conclusions of a groundwater treatment pilot test program. This pilot test program was undertaken to determine the removal performance for arsenic, manganese and iron at the City of Merced’s Well 20 site. Chemical treatment processes required were also studied.
