AMS Advances the Evaluation and Review of a More Stringent Federal Arsenic Standard with Its SafeGuard™ H2O Innovative and Cost-Effective Arsenic Removal Technology

It has been nearly 20 years since the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) federal arsenic standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb) was put into place; however, the 2001 regulation remains the same today with the exception of New Hampshire and New Jersey that have implemented a more stringent maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 5 ppb at the state level (EPA, 2001). This paper aims to advance the evaluation and review of a more stringent federal arsenic standard by presenting evidence of an innovation in arsenic removal technology — Aqua Metrology Systems’ (AMS) SafeGuard™ H2O (SGH2O) — that is proven, validated and commercially available. The technology virtually eliminates arsenic and drastically reduces the cost of removing the toxic contaminant from water supplies when compared to alternative treatment technologies.
