Many small communities in the US/Mexico border region, Alaska and elsewhere throughout the US lack the financial and technical capabilities to construct, maintain and operate complex and expensive treatment systems capable of simultaneously removing multiple contaminants from their groundwater sources. However, with the ever-increasing need for potable water and increasing regulations impacting small systems, a possibility exists to employ small and simple point-of-entry or point-of-use treatment systems in small communities across the US/Mexico border region. These systems could offer an inexpensive and simple alternative capable of simultaneously removing a wide range of inorganic and organic contaminants.
