Water & Energy Sustainable Technology Center
Devoted To DPR Advancement
Proving a commitment to the advancement of Direct Potable Reuse (DPR), Garver partnered with the Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department and the Water & Energy Sustainable Technology (WEST) Center at the University of Arizona, which is researching the optimization of technologies for the control of chemicals of emerging concern. The highlight of this effort was the WEST DPR mobile pilot trailer, which collected treated effluent from water resource recovery facilities in Arizona, sent the effluent through an advanced water purification process within the trailer, and provided the product water to local breweries to be used in a brewing competition. Garver designed the granular activated carbon filtration system for the trailer, and provided video displays that explained the role of water reuse in the future of drinking water.
