Overcoming Iron Bacteria in Water Wells—A New Perspective

Presented on Tuesday, November 29, 2011

For the past 10 years, Australian and European water professionals have been using an organic chemical compound to treat iron related bacteria in locations which historically have the worst iron problems in the world. Using a video camera to access the problem, we will present a case study from California in 2011 (featured in the April 2011 edition of the Water Well Journal). A step by step of the procedure will be shown in pictures, and samples, including before and after results. You will learn how organic acid-based treatment for iron related bacteria can replace chlorination and/or other treatments and how water well video cameras can help identify chemical problems in wells in addition to documenting treatment results.
