Lummi Island, Washington - Arsenic, Iron, Sulfide Treatment System
In mid 2004, AdEdge Technologies Inc. (AdEdge) was selected by Miller Water Association and Anvil Corporation to assist in the design of a fullscale arsenic treatment project for this small community. Arsenic levels are alarmingly high at 0.18 mg/l, 18 times higher than the new Federal standard of 0.010 mg/l. In addition to arsenic, many of the homeowners using the water objected to the sulfide odor resonating from the water. AdEdge worked closely with Anvil Corporation and the Homeowners Association to provide a suitable treatment train that would achieve the treatment objectives in accordance with the Washington Dept. of Health (WDOH) guidelines for an arsenic treatment.
