Washington City Selects UV Disinfection Systems

Jan. 30, 2015
The UV disinfection systems will be installed in the city of Oak Harbor, Wash.,'s wastewater treatment plant.

The city of Oak Harbor, Wash., has awarded the contract to supply the ultraviolet (UV) disinfection equipment for the wastewater plant improvement to ETS-UV by Neptune Benson.

Oak Harbor is the largest city on Whidbey Island, in Island County, Wash. Named after the Garry Oak trees that define its skyline, it is linked to the mainland by the Deception Pass Bridge.

The Neptune Benson UV systems have been designed using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and validated to meet the NWRI guidelines (2012). The systems incorporate energy saving 800-watt amalgam lamps. The system will be designed to disinfect a peak flow of 4.5 million gal per day, with additional reactors to be added in the future to accommodate plant expansions.

"It is very pleasing to see the operational advantages of our designs recognized, and we look forward to working with the project team of Hoffman Construction Company and Carollo Eng.," said Jon McClean, president of ETS-UV by Neptune Benson.
