Radon is a gas that has no color, odor, or taste and comes from the natural radioactive breakdown of uranium in the ground. We can be exposed to radon by two main sources:
USEPA estimates that between 30 and 600 lung cancer deaths a year result from radon contamination of drinking water. Only about 1-2 percent of radon in the air comes from drinking water. However, breathing radon increases the risk of lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. Some radon stays in the water; drinking water containing radon also presents a risk of developing internal organ cancers, primarily stomach cancer. However, this risk is smaller than the risk of developing lung cancer from radon released to air from tap water.
WETS uses aeration as the preferred method for removal of arsenic from drinking water. We usually suggest doing a pilot study to decide on the best aeration method for a particular case. Our pilot study will economize on the chemical dosing and also help in getting TCEQ approval. Our solutions are unique for each plant as we don’t offer an off-the-shelf product.
