Containerized water treatment systems will remove arsenic from wells that are non-compliant with EPA regulations
AdEdge Water Technologies LLC has been awarded a contract to work with Sunrise Eng. to design and build three AdEdge WaterPOD containerized water treatment systems for Spring Creek Utilities Co. near Elko, Nev.
AdEdge was selected among companies to evaluate, design and manufacture three packaged systems to reduce excessive arsenic from three individual well sites where testing revealed excessive arsenic concentrations above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maximum contaminant level (MCL) of 10 ppb.
Using AdEdge AD26 coagulation/filtration technology, each system is housed inside of a 40-ft-long by 8-ft-wide customized modular building with combined design flows of approximately 1950 gal per minute.
Systems combine performance with economy, resulting in an ideal solution for sites where space, cost and installation schedules are critical. As part of each system, an AdEdge H2Zero backwash recycle system will be designed and provided at the sites.
Included is a vertical backwash holding tank with adequate capacity for temporary storage of the backwash water, controls, flow meter and pump skid with a control panel. Backwash water will be collected, separated and reprocessed through the treatment system reclaiming up to 95% of the backwash water with no surface discharge.
In addition, AdEdge AD-IN CO2 gas injection modules for pH control to enhance and optimize the arsenic treatment process.
