Removal and Destruction of Perchlorate and Other Anions from Ground Water Using the ISEP+TM System
Recently, there has been increased regulatory attention towards the presence of perchlorate (ClO4 −)in many ground water aquifers in California and several other states. At least 11 states in the U.S. are believed to have sites contaminated with perchlorate in their aquifers or waterways.1 Perchlorate in drinking water is believed to cause potential problems for infants and patients with hypothyroidism by interfering with the ability of the thyroid gland to process iodine.2 A provisional action level (PAL) of 18 μg L−1 perchlorate in drinking water has been established by the Department of Health Services in California.
