URANIUM IN DRINKING WATER

WHAT IS URANIUM?

Uranium is a common element that exists naturally in soil and rock throughout the world. It is radioactive. In Nova Scotia, the concentration of uranium in the soil, on average, is three parts of uranium for one million parts of soil. 

HOW DOES URANIUM GET INTO DRINKING WATER?

Uranium can get into water supply when groundwater dissolves minerals that contain uranium. High levels of Uranium are more more commonly found in drilled wells rather than dug wells or surface water supplies.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH CONCERNS?

Studies show that elevated levels of uranium in drinking water can affect the kidneys. 

HOW DO YOU REMOVE IT FROM DRINKING WATER?

There are several treatment processes that can be used to treat water with Uranium at the point-of-entry or the point-of-use. Some of the more common and effective methods include reverse osmosisanion exchange and adsorption media.
