Filtering out contaminants
EPA Remedial Project Manager Ben Conetta explains the Air Stripper filtration system in which contaminated water cascades down and air is pushed up, following Henry's Law in filtering contaminated water before it is released at acceptable treatment levels. Conetta explained the procedure at the water treatment plant at the Superfund site on Monday afternoon for local media.
