Uranium Treatment for Groundwater

Uranium is a naturally occurring metallic element found in certain groundwaters. Most uranium found in nature and associated with groundwater is in the form of uranium isotope 238. This form of uranium breaks down (decays) slowly into daughter products, radium and radon gas. Uranium is significant for designs because it is regulated at 30 µg/l for potable water and exists as an oxyanion when dissolved in water.


  • The most cost-efficient technology for uranium removal is the strong base anion exchange process. Typically waters having uranium contain less than 100µg/l. Anion resins have a high affinity for removal, so uranium removal treatment intervals can be long prior to regeneration being required. 

  • Reverse osmosis membrane treatment can also be a suitable technology for uranium removal. Tonka Water can assist designers in membrane selection and system configuration for your uranium treatment goals.
