Three AdEdge WaterPOD containerized water treatment systems will remove arsenic from threewells that are non-compliant with the EPA Arsenic MCL of 10 ppb.

Buford, Ga. (September 2011) AdEdge Water Technologies, LLC, a leading supplier of water treatmentsystems, has been awarded a contract to work with the owners engineer, Sunrise Engineering to design andbuild three AdEdge WaterPOD containerized water treatment systems for Spring Creek Utilities Companynear Elko, Nevada. AdEdge was selected among companies to evaluate, design and manufacture threepackaged systems to reduce excessive arsenic from three individual well sites where testing revealedexcessive arsenic concentrations above the EPA MCL of 10 ppb.

Using AdEdge AD26 coagulation/filtration technology, each WaterPOD system consists of separate,completely packaged, pre-piped, instrumented, and automated system, and housed inside of 40-feet long x 8-feet customized modular buildings, with combined design flows of approximately 1950 GPM. A WaterPODsystem combines performance with economy, resulting in an ideal solution for sites where space, cost, andinstallation schedules are critical. As part of each system, an AdEdge H2Zero backwash recycle system willbe designed and provided at the sites. Included is a vertical backwash holding tank with adequate capacity fortemporary storage of the backwash water, controls, flow meter, and pump skid with a control panel. Backwashwater will be collected, separated and re-processed through the treatment system reclaiming up to 95% of thebackwash water with no surface discharge. In addition, AdEdge AD-IN CO2 gas injection modules for pHcontrol to enhance and optimize the arsenic treatment process.

“Given the very aggressive timeline to have arsenic treatment online by the end of 2011, our innovativecontainerized system approach is the ideal solution for Spring Creek,” said Greg Gilles, Vice President andPrincipal, AdEdge Water Technologies. “The system design features green technologies that save water andwill effectively remove the arsenic to below the MCL”.
