Abstract

The aim of the paper is to present cost-effective solutions, arsenic removal treatment system from arsenic prone groundwater source and ecological surface water treatment system as an alternative source of arsenic free water were developed for rural areas at Jyot Sujan village, Murshidabad District, West Bengal, India. 92-94% turbidity removal is possible from HRF 1 and 2, 99.22% turbidity removal is also possible from SSF1 and 2. And pH and bacteria are reducing from the combined surface water treatment system. A dual treatment method for groundwater comprising of oxidationcoagulation- filtration and adsorption by activated alumina is proven to be more economic having more capacity and superior reliability in terms of water quality prescribed by IS 10500, 2012 as compared to other arsenic removal processes using various other media.
