COVENTRY, RI, July 3, 2015 -- In an effort to better protect its drinking water, the city of Taylorville, Ill., recently incorporated advanced ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology at its new drinking water treatment facility.
Provided by Neptune Benson, a specialist in water filtration and disinfection in the municipal, industrial and recreational water markets, the company's ETS UV system treats 100 percent of filtered water, is effective against "chlorine-tolerant" pathogens, and is validated per EPA UVDGM & NSF/ANSI Standard 61.
UV disinfection is often used in conjunction with chlorine to deactivate chlorine-resistant pathogens like Cryptosporidium. When used together, chlorine and UV disinfection provide a high level of protection to drinking water. UV disinfection deactivates illness-causing microorganisms by destroying their genetic material. Once destroyed, the microorganisms cannot reproduce and eventually die.
"ETS UV by Neptune Benson was selected following a competitive evaluation based on: The ease of maintenance on the system, excellent references from another Illinois installation, and the availability of customer service and support." said Jon McClean, president of ETS UV by Neptune Benson.
The City of Taylorville system has been fully validated in accordance with the requirements of the EPA Design Guidance Manual, and the ETS UV is manufactured at the Neptune Benson facility in the city of Beaver Dam, Wis.
