How to Remove Radiation from Water  [YEAR]

Radioactive elements might sound like uncommon water contaminants, but they’re actually often found in drinking water supplies – especially those that come from a groundwater source, like a well.

These contaminants can have dangerous health effects when they’re ingested over long periods, including cancer.

Here, we’ve shared everything you should know about the 5 best treatment methods to remove radiation from water.


Activated carbon filtration is capable of removing up to 99% of certain types of radiation from drinking water.


Aeration works by sending air bubbles through your water, causing radioactive gas particles to break down rapidly.


Reverse osmosis is an effective way to reduce some, but not all, radioactive materials.

The process combines activated carbon with a semi-permeable membrane, providing comprehensive water treatment.

This method of water treatment is recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to remove radioactive isotopes that emit beta-particle radiation.
