1 Iron and Aluminum Compounds for Removing Phosphorus and Turbidity from Pond Waters Claude E. Boyd, Puan Pengseng and Suthira Soongsawang Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures Auburn University, Alabama 36849 USA

2 Turbidity Removal _ Soil colloids + Al 3+ (Fe 3+ )  _ Soil colloids The neutral particles will flocculate and settle from the water.   Al 3 +

3 Phosphorus Removal AL 3+ + H 2 PO 4 - + 2H 2 O  AlPO 4  2H 2 O  + 2H + Fe 3+ + H 2 PO 4 - + 2H 2 O  FePO 4  2H 2 O  + 2H +

4 Effect on Total Alkalinity Al 3+ + 3H 2 O = Al(OH) 3 + 3H + CaCO 3 + 2H + = CO 2 + H 2 O + Ca 2+ 1 mg/L Al 3+ = 5.6 mg/L CaCO 3 Same reaction for iron, but 1 mg/L Fe 3+ = 2.7 mg/L CaCO 3
