The treatment of wells with increased levels of nitrates with RO is preferred for water quality. The use of RO is dependent on the abiility of the process to treat the resultant concentrate. Increase levels of selenium, salts and alpha radiation prohibit discharge without treatment of the concetrate in most instances. For the water treatment plants in Hastings Nebraska a variety of concetrate treatment methods were evaluated and results are presented.
