Company Wins Contract To Clean up Contaminated Water

Trojan Technologies has been awarded a contract for equipment that will be used to destroy chemicals in municipal drinking water in southern California.

Trojan Technologies has been awarded a contract for equipment that will be used to destroy chemicals in municipal drinking water in southern California.

The contract, valued at $1.1 million, has been awarded by California Domestic Water Company (Cal Domestic). Trojan's ultraviolet (UV) equipment will be used at Cal Domestic's facility to destroy N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the local drinking water.

NDMA has recently attracted significant attention from the water treatment community as a potent and potentially wide-ranging water contaminant. A by-product of various processes, the substance is considered a human carcinogen that is hazardous at extremely low concentrations.

Trojan's environmental contaminant treatment systems will be installed this summer, replacing existing UV equipment, and will treat up to 14 million gallons of drinking water a day.

Trojan was selected as the UV supplier because its equipment is not only effective in eliminating chemical contaminants, but is also energy efficient.

"Trojan's systems will produce huge cost savings in electricity, and that's an important consideration in southern California," said Jim Byerrum, President of Cal Domestic.

Over the past year, Trojan has won contracts totaling more than $30 million for its environmental contaminant treatment (ECT) systems — with most of the projects located in southern California.
