The system has consistently met the effluent treatment goals since it began operation
In late 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) approved plans to install a new well and build a new water treatment facility for the city of Roswell, Ga. Barlovento LLC was selected during a competitive bidding process to provide an iron and manganese removal system for the new water supply.
AdEdge Water Technologies LLC was contracted to design, manufacture and commission an iron and manganese treatment plant for the city. The raw water has an iron concentration of >0.8 mg/L and a manganese concentration of >0.1 mg/L, exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) standards of 0.3 mg/L iron and 0.05 mg/L manganese.
The AdEdge treatment system was designed to treat up to 400 gal per minute to serve the water supply wells in removing iron and manganese to the EPA standards. The treatment system was packaged in a compact, skid-mounted unit—AdEdge model APU26-7272CS-2-AVH—utilizing two 72-in. diameter carbon steel vessels in parallel. Each vessel was loaded with AdEdge ADGS+ media and appropriate support media. The ADGS+ media is a manganese dioxide coated media used for the removal of arsenic, iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide.
The system features include:
The AdEdge treatment system was commissioned in late 2012. The system has consistently met the effluent treatment goals of <0.3 mg/L for iron and <0.05 mg/L for manganese since it began operation.
