PITTSBURGH, PA, MARCH 9, 2017 -- Evoqua Water Technologies announced it has been selected again by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Inspection Station in Edinburg, TX to provide chlorine dioxide system maintenance and chemicals to help the facility with disinfection needs as part of its charter to protect US agriculture.

The Moore Air Base provides Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS) which protect U.S. agriculture from damaging pests and diseases. This particular facility focuses on the control and prevention of fruit flies, which can carry pathogenic bacteria and disease.

The contract awarded to Evoqua renews a five-year agreement with the USDA where Evoqua has supplied a Millennium III™ Chlorine Dioxide Generator and sodium chlorite chemicals to meet disinfection needs at the Moore Air Base. The contract also calls for Evoqua to provide ongoing monthly service and testing to ensure the site meets state requirements for chlorite.
