Reducing Contaminants in Canadian Resort Village

In November 2009, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was selected, among other vendors in a tender, by the Resort Village of Kannata Valley (RVKV) to supply an arsenic, iron, manganese and turbidity treatment system for their community in Silton, Saskatchewan. Prior to selection, AdEdge worked with its local representative, The Water Clinic, on piloting the system that was chosen.

Clearing Contaminants in Central Illinois

The village of DeWitt is a small community of approximately 200 residents located in central Illinois. The community had an outdated filter system not meeting regulatory compliance. Berns, Clancy, and Associates contacted AdEdge Water Technologies in 2011 to design, manufacture, and startup an arsenic, iron and manganese, and hydrogen sulfide removal  system for the Village of DeWitt. Prior to the full-scale system, AdEdge commissioned a pilot study in January 2013 to verify the treatment approach due to the challenging water chemistry.

Creating A Safe Supply

Quilicura is a municipality located in the Santiago Metropolitan Region in Chile. Well No. 3 has a flow of 1,600 gal per minute (gpm), or 100 liters per second. The well has a high concentration of arsenic that fluctuates between 0.040 mg/L and 0.060 mg/L, well above the World Health Organization’s standard of 0.010 mg/L.

In addition to the high arsenic concentration, the site has challenges with pH that ranges from 7.0 to 9.5.

System Solves Odor Problems in Florida Community

In January 2010, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by Aqua Utilities Florida to provide a hydrogen sulfide removal system for the Lake Josephine Community located in Highlands County, Fla.

Packaged System Reduces Arsenic Levels in Chilean Community

The residential subdivision of Alto Lampa is a rapidly developing neighborhood located just outside of Santiago de Chile. The community is served by two wells, each with a flow of 800 gal per minute, running one at a time. Both wells produce raw water with high arsenic concentrations that fluctuate between 0.015 mg/L and 0.030 mg/L, which is above the World Health Organization’s level of 0.010 mg/L.

Treatment System Helps Vermont Town Meet Arsenic Standard

The town of Newport Center, Vt., is a small community of approximately 1,500 residents located just south of the U.S.-Canada border. A combination of drought and an increase of water use required the drilling of a new well for the community in addition to two wells already in service.

Water quality testing of the new well found arsenic levels at 20 parts per billion (ppb)—well above the 10 ppb drinking water standard set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the state of Vermont.

Canadian River Mine Reduces Arsenic Levels

In late 2011, Yukon Nevada Gold contacted AdEdge Water Technologies LLC to design, manufacture and start up an arsenic removal system for the Ketza River Mine in Yukon, Canada. The site required arsenic treatment of the discharge water from the mine’s tailings pond. The existing treatment plant was inoperable.

Nevada Conservation Camp Eliminates Arsenic

In June 2008, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by Brown and Caldwell of Carson City, Nev., to assist in the design and selection of an arsenic treatment system for the Humboldt Conservation Camp near Winnemucca, Nev.

Ion Exchange Treatment for Industrial Nitrates Application

In July 2011, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was selected by CET Eng. Services and the client via a competitive bidding process to design, manufacture and start up a packaged nitrate removal system for a food processing plant located in Lancaster County, Pa. The existing water system is 0.7 million gal per day, consisting of a single well pump feeding multiple atmospheric storage tanks coupled with final UV disinfection at a design flow rate of more than 500 gal per minute (gpm).

Decontaminating the Ross River Water Treatment Plant

In April 2008, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by the Yukon government to provide an arsenic, iron and manganese removal system for the Ross River Water Treatment Plant in Yukon, Canada. The water system serves a community of 350 residents. The existing water system consisted of a well feeding into a distribution system with a maximum capacity of 200 gal per minute. AdEdge ran a small-scale pilot of the project for five months in the summer and fall of 2008. After successful piloting of the treatment approach, AdEdge was awarded the project.

Nitrate Removal Solution in Pennsylvania

In July 2011, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was selected by CET Engineering Services and the client via a competitive bidding process to design, manufacture and start up a packaged nitrate removal system for a food processing plant located in Lancaster County, Pa. The existing water system is 0.7 million gal per day, consisting of a single well pump feeding multiple atmospheric storage tanks coupled with final UV disinfection at a design flow rate of over 500 gal per minute (gpm).

Odor Be Gone

In January 2010, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by Aqua Utilities Florida to provide a hydrogen sulfide removal system for the Lake Josephine Community, located in Highlands County, Fla. The existing water system consisted of two wells feeding into a centralized distribution system with a maximum capacity of 230 gal per minute (gpm) being consumed by a population of 1,250 people. The raw water well water contains high levels of hydrogen sulfide which produces objectionable odors in the customers’ tap.

Tranquility Restored

In August 2011, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by White Horse Youth Ranch to provide an arsenic and TDS (total dissolved solids) removal system for its facility in Las Vegas. White Horse Youth Ranch offers underprivileged children in Clark County, Nev., the opportunity to find peace and tranquility in their lives through learning how to care for and ride a horse. The existing water system consisted of one well feeding into a centralized distribution system with a maximum capacity of 28 gal per minute (gpm).

Treatment System Relieves Village Reliance on Bottled Water

In late 2000, the village of Clarks in central Nebraska was alerted that the water from its public drinking water system contained uranium levels of more than 200 ppb, which far exceeded the proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Maximum Contaminant Limit (MCL) of 30 ppb. In 2005, the village received an administrative order from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for non-compliance with the new uranium MCL. As a result, free bottled water has been provided to village residents. 

Treatment System Delivers Gift of Clean, Arsenic-Free Water

AdEdge Water Technologies LLC recently delivered a water treatment system to San Antonio de Los Cobres, a village of 5,000 residents in Argentina's Andes Mountains, to reduce a challenging arsenic concentration of 290 parts per billion (ppb) to below the maximum contaminant level (MCL) set by the World Health Organization of 10 ppb.

Oxidation, Filtration Unit for Iron, Manganese Removal

In July 2009, AdEdge Water Technologies was contacted by Aqua North Carolina to provide an iron and manganese removal system for the Sunset Forest public water system located just outside Raleigh, N.C.

The raw water had an average iron level of 0.49 mg/L and a manganese level of 0.39 mg/L, well above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) secondary maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) of 0.3 mg/L and 0.05 mg/L respectively.

Finding a Solution

Dewatering for Iron and Manganese Removal

In October 2010, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by JVA Inc. to provide an iron and manganese dewatering system for residences in Boulder, Colo.

Raw groundwater contained iron levels between 4.6 and 7.4 mg/L and a manganese level of 4.5 mg/L, well above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) secondary maximum contaminant levels (MCL) of 0.3 mg/L and 0.05 mg/L respectively. Iron and manganese levels need to comply with the EPA MCLs in order to discharge into the sanitary sewer and meet applicable discharge criteria.

Ion Exchange for Uranium Removal

In July 2010, AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contacted by Engineering Resources to design, manufacture and install a uranium water treatment system for the community of Arrowbear Park County Water District in California's San Bernardino National Forest.
