Abstract: The contamination of drinking water is a matter of concern to many communities and people. Small community water systems and individual residences supplied by private wells face severe economic constraints when faced with developing alternatives to remove these contaminants. Point-of-use (POU) treatment may provide a cost-effective answer. Many different types of POU devices are currently available on the market. However, no formal certification or operating standards exist that ensures their performance. A matrix evaluation is one method of screening the available devices and selecting a limited number that can be field tested. (Author abstract. )
