Copper is a heavy metal that can harm the human’s body through water if present in excessive amount. The presence of metal in drinking water is of special concern because of its persistence and toxicity. The elimination of copper from water is important toprotect public health. Different low cost adsorbents are used to remove copper from water. The strict environmental regulation and enforcement of discharge limits require effective decontamination and purification methods for copper removal. The adsorbents proved to be beneficial because of cost effectiveness. In present review paper, copper contamination, its toxicity and its removal fromdrinking water using different adsorbents is depicted.
