AdEdge Technologies Awarded Treatment Project for Nevada Tribal Community

Uranium and arsenic treatment system project will serve Campbell Ranch, Nev.

AdEdge Technologies recently announced it has been awarded and is implementing an integrated uranium and arsenic treatment system project for the community of Campbell Ranch, Nev.

The community of Campbell Ranch is part of the Yerington Paiute Tribe in Lyon County, Nev., serviced by a community water system supplied by two wells. Historical water testing data from the wells at Campbell Ranch revealed uranium levels of 20 to 47 parts per billion, as well as high arsenic co-existing at the site at concentrations above the acceptable U.S. Environmental Protection Agency maximum contaminant levels for drinking water.

AdEdge has been working closely with the Indian Health Service on this project for the past two years and was awarded the project based on its integrated approach featuring AdEdge’s AD92, a strong base anion exchange process for uranium reduction and Adsorption using Bayoxide E33 granular ferric oxide media. The packaged, skid-mounted treatment system is sized to treat an average of 93,000 gal per day and will utilize a specially designed carbon dioxide gas system for pH correction to enhance performance.

“We have provided drinking water treatment solutions now for various Native American Tribes at over 20 locations throughout the nation and are very pleased to assist the Yerington Paiute Tribe and the Indian Health Service on yet another important project to improve the quality of their drinking water” said Greg Gilles, vice president of AdEdge.
