New USGS Filter Removes Phosphorus from Waste Water

RESTON VA

Designed by a small U.S. Geological Survey team, this cost-effective and environmentally friendly water filter system uses discarded mining byproducts, called mine drainage ochre, as the primary filtering agent to remove phosphorus from municipal and agricultural waste waters. This tabletop water filter demo has in five-years grown into a fully functional water treatment system capable of filtering more than 100-thousand gallons per day.
