Isleton, Calif. SafeGuard™ H2O Arsenic Treatment System Demonstration Report

California American Water’s Isleton Water System underwent an evaluation of SafeGuard™ H2O, an intelligent arsenic remediation system manufactured by AMS. This innovative technology generates a ferrous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process to address arsenic contamination. The objective of the project was to demonstrate the ability of the electrogenerated ferrous reagent produced on demand by the SafeGuard™ H2O system to remove arsenic from unchlorinated well water reliably and effectively. The SafeGuard™ H2O system consistently treated arsenic below 10 ppb and the technology’s modular design can be easily integrated with the facility’s existing coagulation/filtration system; replacing the use of liquid ferric chloride and providing the facility with operational and capital savings.

Los Banos, Calif. SafeGuard™ H2O Cr(VI) Treatment System Pilot Report

A SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent Cr(VI) remediation system demonstration unit with a treatment capacity of 10 gpm was installed with the City of Los Banos, California to evaluate the performance of the technology to treat Cr(VI) to non-detect levels (under 1 ppb) in unchlorinated well water.  SafeGuard H2O is an innovative technology based on a proprietary approach that generates on demand a stannous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process. The pilot with Los Banos provided confirmation of the technology’s efficacy and third-party validation of the SafeGuard H2O system as a cost-effective alternative to traditional Cr(VI) treatment systems. Results are detailed.

Evaluation and Review of a More Stringent Federal Arsenic Standard

It has been more than 20 years since the U.S. EPA federal arsenic standard of 10 ppb was put into place; however, the 2001 regulation remains the same today with the exception of New Hampshire and New Jersey which have implemented a more stringent MCL of 5 ppb at the state level. 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 that is proven, validated and commercially available. The SafeGuard™ H2O technology from AMS virtually eliminates arsenic and drastically reduces the cost of removing the toxic contaminant from water supplies when compared to alternative treatment technologies.

Bringing Innovative and Affordable Solutions to a Costly and Complex Problem

AMS is committed to bringing intelligent water remediation solutions that can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely, while ensuring that these systems are more accessible to a wider sector of the population through affordable financial models. As such, AMS has offered an official response to a white paper — “Economic Feasibility Analysis in Consideration of a Hexavalent Chromium MCL” — published by the California State Water Board (SWB), who is engaged in a process of consultation to determine at what level the regulatory limit for Cr(VI) should be set. AMS’ position on Cr(VI) regulation and comments to SWB are summarized in this technical brief.

A ‘Canary in the Mine’: Advocating for Real-Time Monitoring Solutions to Detect Lead in Drinking Water

Lead contamination in drinking water presents a serious threat to human health. While utilities monitor for lead by sampling infrequently only a small number of domestic points of use, these traditional lead monitoring programs lack the ability to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ from AMS is designed to offer communities real-time, continuous and dynamic water quality assessment of the presence of total lead in buildings or zones exposed to events that are the cause of acute lead contamination to reduce the risk of exposure.
