Bulletin on Home Water Treatment Available

A bulletin on A Guide to Home Water Treatment is now available. The 8-page Extension bulletin discusses various home treatment systems to help reduce contaminants such as heavy metals, inorganic compounds, and pathogens. The bulletin discusses the pros and cons of systems such as Reverse Osmosis and membrane filtration, granular activated carbon, distillation, Ozonation and chlorination, ultra-violet radiation, bulk water systems, and water softeners. It also provides a buyer’s checklist and a link to state certified labs. The bulletin was updated and revised from an older Extension bulletin and was authored by Ruth Kline-Robach, Lois Wolfson, Susan Masten, Darren Bagley, Terry Gibb, and Bindu Bhakta.
