UV disinfection system aims to improve IL city drinking water quality
The city of Moline, IL, selected Engineered Treatment Systems as its UV system provider for the city's drinking water.
Nov. 5, 2013 -- The city of Moline, Ill., recently selected Engineered Treatment Systems (ETS, LLC), a company specializing in the development and manufacturer of ultraviolet (UV) systems, as its UV system provider for the city's drinking water.
The system will consist of eight of the ETS SX-635-16 drinking water reactors each installed after an existing filter within the drinking water facility. Further, the UV systems are third-party validated in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Guidance manual and are manufactured at the ETS production facility in Beaver Dam, Wis.
The utility serves a population of 43,500 people, and the drinking water plant is fed by the Mississippi River. This source, in turn, draws water from an 85,000-square-mile agricultural watershed; a robust disinfection barrier is essential. Accordingly, the city carefully examined a variety of disinfection methods, and UV was selected as the most cost advantageous.
