PITTSBURGH, PA, June 15, 2011 -- Under two new contracts, Calgon Carbon will supply Sentinel® Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Systems at drinking water production plants in the cities of Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Separately, Fort Wayne will install three Chevron 48" UV reactors at its Three Rivers water filtration plant as part of a retrofitting project. The new UV reactors -- capable of treating up to 72 million gallons of water per day were selected because of their low capital and operating costs. Installation is scheduled for June 2012.
