The research focused on development of a community based Arsenic-Iron Removal Unit (AIRU) adopting the technique of adsorption and co-precipitation of arsenic onto the flocs of ferric hydroxide, making use of the naturally occurring iron of groundwater. The operation and maintenance of the developed AIRU are simpler and more users friendly in comparison to the previously developed community based water treatment units. Number of beneficiaries and water consumption was increased by about 10 folds after the installation of the AIRU.
