A Texas-Sized UV Pilot: Pursuing Alternative Disinfection
To evaluate replacement of the Trinity River Authority’s current chlorination/dechlorination facilities at the Central Regional Wastewater System, Garver, alongside CDM Smith and CP&Y, completed field operations of a UV pilot of ultraviolet disinfection process. The project required simultaneously pilot-testing four parallel UV disinfection processes, along with a parallel peracetic acid feed and reactor. Garver also evaluated high-rate clarification of the secondary effluent prior to UV disinfection during ongoing operations and testing of the peracetic acid reactor.
The data the Garver field team gathered by managing the day-to-day operations of this complex pilot study will ensure this future UV facility will be optimized for performance and efficiency.Jeff Sober Garver Texas Region Water Leader
