Consistent with the Environment Canada and Health Canada (2010) report, the present assessment considers neurotoxicity and reproductive/developmental toxicity to be the critical endpoints of concern. 11(4): 345-351. do Nascimento, S.N., Charao, M.F., Moro, A.M., Roehrs, M., Paniz, C., Baierle, M., Brucker, N., Gioda, A., Barbosa, F., Bohrer, D., Avila, D.S. Adequate coagulant dosing and strict pH control are necessary to practice optimum coagulation and minimize residual aluminum. (2011) and a reproductive (sperm quality) study in rats by Martinez et al. Dempsey, B.A. (1975). This approach is not recommended, because the addition of phosphorous generates competing chemical reactions during water treatment. EPA acknowledges that no safe level of lead exists in drinking water (MCLG=0 ppb).

The proposed MAC of 2.9 mg/L (2,900 μg/L) is protective of potential health effects and can be reliably measured by available analytical methods and achieved by coagulation. By Brett Walton, Circle of Blue The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency completed its first major revisions in nearly three decades to federal rules for lead in drinking water, adding a raft of new intricacies to one […] The NOAEL of 30 mg Al/kg bw per day identified by the authors is based on a dose-related decline in neuromuscular parameters (i.e., foot splay, hind- and fore-limb grip strength) as well as clinical observations, clinical biochemical changes and effects on renal pathology. Technol. Conductivity in water is affected by the presence of inorganic dissolved solids such as chloride, nitrate, sulfate, and phosphate anions (ions that carry a negative charge) or sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and aluminum cations (ions that carry a positive charge). Sun, X., Cao, Z., Zhang, Q., Liu, S., Xu, F., Che, J., Zhu, Y., Li, Y., Pan, C. and Liang, W. (2015). Of note is that the hazard is based on exposure to known carcinogens (primarily polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) and not aluminum (IARC, 2012). Mech. The WHO has set practicable values of 0.1-0.2 mg/L based on optimization of the coagulation process in drinking water plants (WHO, 2010). Other study limitations include the use of single doses (which prevents the evaluation of a dose-response relationship and the determination of a point of departure), lack of detail on exposure conditions, failure to account for the acidity and decreased palatability of aluminum. Key water quality parameters relevant to these mechanisms include pH, temperature, oxidation-reduction potential, NOM, sulphate, dissolved inorganic carbon, fluoride, and residual concentrations of orthophosphate or silicate (when applied for corrosion control). J. (2017). Higher temperatures in the summer, for example, may allow aluminum to stay in dissolved form and not precipitate. Theoretical solubility models for the lead carbonate-orthophosphate system typically assume the formation of hydroxypyromorphite (Pb5(PO4)3OH), but orthophosphate may precipitate with residual aluminum (range of 29-110 μg/L for this study), forming porous aluminum- and phosphorus-rich deposits that adhere poorly to pipe surfaces and do not effectively inhibit lead release (Wasserstrom et al., 2017). Food Chem. Primary drinking water standards. Assessment of inorganics accumulation in drinking water system scales and sediments. 313-388. For compliance to NSF/ANSI Standard 60, chemical products must not exceed an at-the-tap concentration of 2 mg/L aluminum. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/J-84/082 (NTIS PB84244144). Total aluminum includes both the dissolved and particulate (suspended) fractions of aluminum in a water sample and is analyzed using methods for total recoverable aluminum. (2017). Toxicol. As such, the impacts on these systems or private wells are difficult to quantify. and Miraglia, N. (2014). Modulatory effect of fenugreek seeds. For many water supplies, coagulant dosing will be controlled by the amount of NOM present rather than the turbidity (Edzwald and Van Benschoten, 1990; Pernitsky and Edzwald, 2006; Edzwald and Kaminski, 2009; Health Canada, 2018b). (1998). The facts about human health and aluminum in drinking water. Technol., 42(7): 2582-2589. Res., 157(1): 14-23. Pharmacol., 133(1): 64-72.

Although the total number of NPL sites evaluated for this substance is not known, th… Unusual sources of aluminium and heavy metals in potable waters. (2013). Typical levels of 250 and 350 ppm aluminum in rodent chow could result in an additional 13-18 mg Al/kg bw per day in rats and 33-46 mg Al/kg in mice (Environment Canada and Health Canada, 2010). Xu, L., Zhang, W., Liu, X., Zhang, C., Wang, P. and Zhao, X. Technol., 27(11): 21-35. When optimizing coagulation, it is recommended that a filter effluent turbidity goal of 0.1 NTU be established to minimize aluminum residuals (Jekel and Heinzmann, 1989; Van Benschoten et al., 1992). Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratories. Golub, M.S., Germann, S.L., Han, B. and Keen, C.L. Geochem., 19(7): 1065-1074. Environ. In cases where aluminum removal is required and coagulation is not feasible, the responsible drinking water authority in the affected jurisdiction should be contacted to discuss possible options. Health, 38(1): 265-274. Water Works Assoc., 80(4): 154-158. While NSE does not regulate water quality at private water supplies, <1% are expected to exceed the proposed MAC. The lowest doses at which no adverse effects were observed are 8-14 mg Al/kg bw per day of aluminum sulphate (Hirata-Koizumi, 2011a) and 5-9 mg Al/kg bw per day of aluminum ammonium sulphate (Hirata-Koizumi, 2011b). Strozyk, D., Launer, L.J., Adlard, P.A., Cherny, R.A., Tsatsanis, A., Volitakis, I., Blennow, K., Petrovitch, H., White, L.R. (2001). pp. BMC Vet. Kriewall, D., Harding, R., Maisch, E. and Schanz, L. (1996). (2010). Sci. (2011) was selected as the basis for the current risk assessment. This can be determined by comparing aluminum concentrations in the filter effluent and treated water when aluminum-based coagulants are used or by comparing raw and treated aluminum concentrations for other systems. An operational guideline value (OG) of 0.050 mg/L for Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) also proposed and is based on 1) a running annual average of monthly values determined from daily measurements of filtered water entering the distribution system and 2) on a locational running annual average of quarterly samples taken in the distribution system; the WSA noted that the new proposed OG is nearly 50% reduction of the existing operational guidance value of 0.100 mg/L aluminum in drinking water. The majority of results presented in Table 9 are for groundwater systems, which tend to have lower aluminum concentrations. Role of aluminosilicate deposits in lead and copper corrosion. Zhou, Y, and Yokel, R.A. (2005). and Bush, A.I. Cal EPA (2001). Key factor in determining whether or not study would be considered for use as a potential key study. Cooper, R.E. Am. Since the aluminum citrate was delivered through the drinking water, the dose of aluminum varied with the extent of water consumption. and Van Dijk, J.C. (2009). Chairman: Professor Dame Barbara Clayton. Hirata-Koizumi, M., Fujii, S., Ono, A., Hirose, A., Imai, T., Ogawa, K., Ema, M. and Nishikawa, A. Metabolism, 42(10): 1296-1300. Aluminum is known to foul reverse osmosis membranes (Allenby, 2004); cation exchange resins must be modified and used at an extremely low pH (Vanloot et al., 2007); lime softening may increase aluminum concentrations (Reijnen et al., 1991; Alabdula'aly, 1998; Kettunen and Keskitalo, 2000; AWWA, 2011a); and chemical oxidants, such as chlorine, are ineffective because the oxidation state of aluminum does not change (Edzwald, 2018). The results indicate that aluminum is more likely to exist in surface waters than in groundwaters and that there is a 40-50 percent chance that alum coagulation increases the aluminum concentration of finished water above its original concentration in the raw water. Farhat, S.M., Mahboob, A., Iqbal, G. and Ahmed, T. (2017b). The literature to date provides no indication of a difference between the mode of action in animals and that in humans. Health., 11(10): 10806-10823. Bioavailability of Al in alum-treated drinking water. (2010). Ensuring safe drinking water: Learning from frontline experience with contamination. (2016). Desalination, 131(1-3): 271-283. In terms of reproductive outcomes, no effects on gestational length or on the number of offspring and litters were observed in the aluminum-treated groups as compared with controls. In 2016, over 90 percent of the nation's community water systems were in compliance with all published U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards. As it is difficult to control the accumulation and release of aluminum and other health-based contaminants in the distribution system, the control strategy should minimize the aluminum concentration that enters the distribution system from the treatment plant. Erazi, H., Sansar, W., Ahboucha, S. and Gamrani, H. (2010). Hazard. The responsible drinking water authority in the affected jurisdiction should be contacted to confirm how the proposed OG of 0.050 mg/L will be applied to facilities using aluminum-based coagulants and distribution system management plans. Toxicol. Toxicol., 60(4): 280-283. Treatment technologies may produce a variety of residuals that contain aluminum (e.g., backwash water, reject water/concentrate). Higher aluminum concentration in Alzheimer's disease after box-cox data transformation. EPA Home » Science Inventory » OCCURRENCE OF ALUMINUM IN DRINKING WATER. (2015). Ministry of Health, Wellington. Environmental Health Services (EHS) regulatory mandate extends to curb stop for large public drinking water systems. Pernitsky, D.J. Water pollution at Lowermoor, North Cornwall. In Germany, levels of aluminium in public water supplies averaged 0.01 mg/litre in the western region, whereas levels in 2.7% of public supplies in the eastern region exceeded 0.2 mg/litre (Wilhelm & Idel, 1995). Neurotoxicol. National Water Quality Management Strategy. From source to tap: Guidance on the multi-barrier approach to safe drinking water. It is noted that, for the timeframe studied (2012-2017), none of the available private system results were above the health based guideline of 2.9 mg/L. Of the 6 supplies, 5 were from supplies that utilize alum-based coagulants. UK Committee on Toxicology. Technol., 38(20): 5365-5372.

Golub, M.S., Han, B., Keen, C.L. Combination of membrane technology and limestone filtration to control drinking water quality. Increasing the coagulant dose decreased aluminum residual concentrations from 0.16-0.50 mg/L to 0.06-0.07 mg/L (Srinivasan et al., 1999; Anderson et al., 2017; Health Canada, 2018a). It is important to note that these are estimated concentrations, not actual concentrations measured in treated drinking water. Albizzati, A., More, L., Di Candia, D., Saccani, M. and Lenti, C. (2012). To get accurate results and ensure the safety of your family, have your water tested in a laboratory with the necessary equipment. Food Chem. NSF International, Ann Arbor, Michigan. In general, doses were at (or slightly under) target level at gestation, higher than target level during lactation, and lower than target level during the remainder of the study. The standards set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for drinking water quality is denoted by Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs). Appelo, C.A.J. Krishnan, K. and Carrier, R.
