MANGANESE

MANGANESE IN CT WELL WATER

Manganese is a naturally occurring mineral found in rocks, soil, organic matter from landfills, compost, brush, etc.  Manganese is leached from different sources and enters into the water.

Manganese is also a mineral necessary for a healthy human diet. But in high dosages, it can be harmful (see below for more details). Treatment is recommended at levels of .05 mg/l or higher.
