DULUTH, GA, June 16, 2016 -- AdEdge Water Technologies today announced it has been awarded and is implementing a biottta (biologically tailored two-stage treatment approach) nitrate, perchlorate, and trichloroethylene removal project for the West Valley Water District, California.

The West Valley Water District serves several communities in Riverside County, California. Historic levels of perchlorate and trichloroethylene are not compliant with the California drinking waterstandards along with an increasing concern with rising nitrate in the water supply. biottta is a sustainable and environmentally friendly treatment process that uses naturally-occurring bacteria to eliminate multiple contaminants from groundwater rather than creating harmful waste streams typically found in conventional treatment processes such as ion exchange and reverse osmosis applications. Prior to the selection of the biotttaTM treatment system, the West Valley Water District had installed another commercially available biological process; however, with the water plants expansion, the limited available space made a compelling argument for biottta.

AdEdge will design and manufacture a biottta treatment plant rated for a maximum flow of 1.5 MGD. The treatment consists of a vertical pressure vessel acting as an anoxic bioreactor and a second vertical pressure vessel serving as an aerobic biofilter. This simple and easy to operate treatment process is an ideal solution for communities out of compliance with federal and state drinking water regulations.
