Hexavalent chromium (Cr6) in drinking water is a controversial topic in California. More than 20 years after the film Erin Brockovich was released raising public awareness and concern about Cr6, high levels of the contaminant continue to pose a threat to the health of thousands of consumers. To meet the need for an affordable treatment system that eliminates Cr6 from drinking water supplies and removes the barrier to a lower regulatory limit for this carcinogen, AMS developed SafeGuard™ H2O. The technology ensures a safe and affordable treatment approach to meet the Cr6 public health goal of 0.02 ppb while saving California taxpayers millions of dollars. During a pilot demonstration at the City of Los Banos, Calif., AMS’ SafeGuard H2O Cr6 treatment system proved to reduce Cr6 to non-detect levels at an annual cost per household in small communities of less than $5 per day.Read the press release.
