ARLINGTON, VA, Oct. 22, 2004 -- The U.S. Department of Defense, through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), will be funding demonstration projects for treatment of perchlorate in drinking water.

The objective of this effort is to evaluate alternative technologies that can significantly reduce the costs of removing perchlorate for large-scale drinking water treatment.

ESTCP intends to fund multiple demonstration projects through this competitive selection process. The demonstrations will be conducted at a number of selected public water supply utilities in southern California that have been impacted by perchlorate. The due date for these pre-proposals is Nov. 18, 2004.

The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is a corporate Department of Defense (DoD) program that promotes innovative, cost-effective environmental technologies through demonstration and validation at DoD sites.
