Ultraviolet Technology Helps Pennsylvania Town Meet Groundwater Regulations

The Hall Road Well Station is located in Abington, Pa., approximately 12 miles (20 km) north of Philadelphia. The site is designed to extract and treat 1.5 million gal per day (mgd) of water from the Piedmont and Blue Ridge crystalline-rock aquifers. It is also part of a network of groundwater extraction wells owned and operated by Aqua-America Pennsylvania (Aqua PA) which delivers more than 22 mgd of treated groundwater to end users in southeast Pennsylvania.

From Chlorine to UV

The city of Auburn, Ala., has two wastewater treatment facilities: the Northside Water Pollution Control Facility and the H.C. Morgan Water Pollution Control Facility. In 2012, the H.C. Morgan facility was upgraded and disinfection was converted from chlorine to ultraviolet (UV). This case study will provide details about the chlorine to UV conversion process, and why the TrojanUVSigna was chosen.

The city of Auburn is a thriving community of approximately 56,900 residents. It is a college town and the home of Auburn University, which has an enrollment of more than 25,000.

Storm Water Treatment With Ultraviolet Disinfection

Located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Sherbourne Common is an innovative waterfront park that provides the public with green recreational space along Lake Ontario in a former industrial area. This park features three large art sculptures that rise almost 9 meters from the ground. Known as “Light Showers,” these sculptures combine water and lights to create a stunning visual piece in the park. The water then flows through an artificial river accessible to the public before discharge into Lake Ontario.
