  2. Adsorptive Removal of Heavy Metals from Groundwater by Iron Oxide Based Adsorbents

    By Valentine Uwamariya

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    In general, groundwater is a preferred source of drinking water because of its convenient availability and its constant and good quality. However this source is vulnerable to contamination by several substances. Acceptable quality limits relative to micropollutant contents in drinking water are...
