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 provided design information for the granular activated carbon filtration system pilot facility, and provided video displays that explain the role of water reuse in the future of drinking water.
