Perchlorate is a highly soluble salt-anion that can negatively affect the ability of the human thyroid to adequately uptake iodine. The majority of the perchlorate contamination in groundwater is believed to be attributable to historical disposal practices by the aerospace and ordinance industries, the military and chemical manufacturers. The overall objective of this project was to provide an effective and reliable water treatment solution for a perchlorate-laden well in the City of Rialto, CA. In doing so, this would allow the local water authority the ability to utilize a valuable but impaired-quality water source, increasing the water security of the community and reducing its dependence on imported water.
