Installation of Arsenic Specific Water Filter

Project Installation of Arsenic Specific Water Filter
Project Date June 2012
Client Industry Healthcare
Client Location Co. Dublin, Ireland
Environmental Services Ireland

 

 

Problem

A client in the Healthcare Sector contacted Environmental Services Ireland (ESI) as the mains water supply to their premises was found to have elevated levels of Arsenic detected at >15 µg/L. The upper limit for Arsenic is 10 µg/L as specified in S.I. No. 278 of 2007 European Communities (Drinking Water) Regulations 2007.

 

Solution

Environmental Services Ireland proposed a fully automated, backwashing water filter for removal of arsenic, minor debris and solids from water. The water filter was installed and commissioned in June 2012 and analysis and verification by an independent laboratory confirmed the effectiveness of the water filter with levels of Arsenic in the supply water post filtration measured at < 0.09 µg/L.
