Geosyntec Practitioners Co-Author Journal Article on the Feasibility of Adding Iodine to Drinking Water to Offset the Potential Health Impacts of Exposure to Low Levels of Perchlorate

Principal Michael Kavanaugh, Ph.D., P.E., Engineer Claire Wildman, Ph.D., P.E., (Oakland branch) and Senior Engineer Deepa Gandhi, P.E., (San Francisco branch), recently published a peer-reviewed article in the Journal of the American Water Works Association.

The article, titled “Iodine Addition to Drinking Water for Perchlorate Mitigation: Engineering Feasibility,” examines the feasibility of adding iodine to drinking water to offset the potential health impacts of exposure to low levels of perchlorate. The paper examines relevant iodine chemistry and presents cost estimates associated with iodine addition, in comparison with conventional treatment technologies.

This article is available free of charge at the Journal of the American Water Works Association (http://dx.doi.org/10.5942/jawwa.2015.107.0067) and it will be included in the print version of the June 2015 issue.
