Abstract

This NebGuide discusses recommended practices to manage iron and manganese in a domestic water supply.

Iron and manganese are non-hazardous elements that can be a nuisance in a water supply. Iron and manganese are chemically similar and cause similar problems. Iron is the most frequent of the two contaminants in water supplies; manganese is typically found in iron-bearing water.
