Description:

Uranium is a common naturally occurring and radioactive substance. It is a normal part of rocks, soil, air and water. Uranium occurs in nature in the form of minerals, but never as a metal. Uranium enters water by leaching from soil and rocks, or in releases from processing plants. Uranium has demonstrated toxic effects on human kidneys leading to their inflammation and changes in urine composition. Uranium can decay into other radioactive substances, such as radium, which can cause cancer with extensive exposure over a long period of time.


This one-day learning event will explore the occurrence, health effects and treatment of uranium in drinking water. Treatment technologies will focus on the most common treatment processes used in small water systems.


Uranium has a half-life of 4.468 billion years. So if you don’t have a couple of billion years to let nature take care of your Uranium problem, this learning event is for you.

 

Participants will learn:

·        Uranium sources and properties

·        Uranium health effects

·        Uranium treatment technologies, including waste disposal issues
