Riverbank filtration has been suggested as a cost-effective method for improving water quality. However, high concentrations of Fe2+ and Mn2+ cause problems for the use of water and the maintenance of facilities. We evaluated the effectiveness and efficiency of an Fe2+ and Mn2+ removal technique based on the in situ injection of highly oxygenated water at a site on the Anseong River, between Anseong City and Pyeongtaek City, Gyeonggi Province. The removal process consists of three steps: injection, resting, and extraction. Results show that the removal efficiency increases with repeated application of the process. The amount of Fe-reduced drinking water satisfying water regulations (limit, 0.3 mg/L Fe) obtained using oxygenated water injection was five times higher than the amount of injected oxygenated water. Levels of Mn2+ were also reduced following the injection of oxygenated water.
