Technical Vocational Institute - Albuquerque, New Mexico - Arsenic Treatment System
Technical Vocational Institute Community College (TVI) is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and services approximately 400 students. In 2005, AdEdge Technologies Inc. (AdEdge) was selected to assist in the design of a full-scale arsenic treatment project for the small community system. Detected arsenic concentrations were approximately 26 parts per billion (ppb). The pH of the water is approximately 7.0. In addition to arsenic, water-quality data indicated relatively high sulfate concentrations. AdEdge worked closely with Kinetico Quality Water Systems in Albuquerque and the facility water-system operators to provide a suitable treatment train that would achieve the treatment objectives in accordance with U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) guidelines for an arsenic treatment.
