A low-cost and potentially effective substitute for natural Fe/Al hydroxides could be the drinking-water treatment residuals (WTRs). Earlier work in our laboratory has shown that WTRs are effective sorbents for As in water. We hypothesized that land-applied WTRs would work equally well for As-contaminated soils. Results showed that WTRs significantly (p < 0.001) increased the soil As sorption capacity. All WTR loads (2.5, 5, and 10%) significantly (p < 0.001) increased the overall amount of As sorbed by both soils when compared with that of the unamended controls. The amount of As desorbed with phosphate (7500 mg kg−1 load) was ∼50%. The WTR effectiveness in increasing soil As sorption capacities was unaffected by differences in both soils' chemical properties.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/4210||ISSN:||0269-7491||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2006.06.035||Rights:||© Elsevier Ltd.||Type:||Article|
