USEPA Arsenic Demonstration Project - Springfield, Ohio – Chateau Estates - Arsenic and Iron Treatment System
AdEdge Technologies Inc. (AdEdge) was selected in 2004 by the U.S. EPA and the host site as part of the Round 2 Arsenic Demonstration Program to implement full scale arsenic treatment for the Chateau Estates Mobil Home Community in Springfield, Ohio. The public water system has approximately 230 connections with an average daily flow of 45,000 gallons per day. AdEdge was contracted by U.S. EPA to perform a turnkey project including design, fabrication, permitting, installation, and startup of the treatment facility. The host site was working closely with Ohio EPA (OEPA) to address the concerns of local residents to permit and implement a treatment cost effective solution as soon as possible. The AdEdge team prepared the design documents and obtained all regulatory permits from OEPA to install a two-stage treatment system to reduce the high iron and arsenic levels to below the new standards from the two wells serving the site. The system utilizes AdEdge’s AD26 and granular ferric oxide (GFO) adsorption system using Bayoxide E33®. Building and system upgrades were also performed prior to arrival of the equipment. The system was installed and placed into full time operation in September, 2005.
