An engineering study was conducted comparing reverse osmosis and activated aluminum filters for most cost effective removal of fluoride, arsenic and nitrates from a City of Goodyear Arizona well source. Activated alumina removed fluoride and arsenic while RO removed both of these and nitrate. RO concentrate may be disposed by solar evaporation.
