- Color in water can occur due to organics, turbidity, bacteria, precipitation, etc.,
- Hungerford & Terry, Inc. offers treatment processes, including ion exchange, coagulation & filtration, absorption, etc., to treat for undesirable color in water.
Color in water can come from many different sources. Things like leaves in surface water can stain water just like tea leaves. This brown or grayish color in water can make drinking water seem unpalatable and add unwanted flavor. Insoluble iron (rust) and tannins are common innocuous color producers. However, color may also be an indication of something more troublesome like pollution, heavy metals or bacteriological colonies. Color removal can be done using several different technologies depending on the contaminant causing the color. H&T’s award winning Green Meadows plant utilized ion exchange, along with a reverse osmosis system to treat water from three separate sources.
