A new comprehensive plan from Evoqua Water Technologies promises to meet the challenge of providing Penn State University’s enormous campus and community with clean water with industry-leading adsorption systems that remove organic contaminants, the university said on Wednesday.
The water-treatment site will be located on the north side of campus, near Beaver Stadium. Installation is scheduled to commence in January 2016 and be completed by October 2016.
The plan will allow the university to meet regulatory requirements, operational demands and water-storage standards required by insurers for fire coverage. The total cost for the plant and distribution upgrades comes to $62 million, with the majority of funding coming from the Commonwealth.
In addition to the adsorption systems, Pittsburgh-based Evoqua also will supply approximately 360,000 pounds of its Westates AquaCarb virgin coconut shell-based granular activated carbon for use in the systems. This material, designed to remove a wide range of organic compounds, is used in drinking water, home water filtration systems and industrial-process water-treatment systems to achieve strict water-quality specifications.
Evoqua is a world leader in helping municipalities and industrial clients protect and improve the world’s most essential natural resource. For over 100 years, it has worked to transform water and wastewater through cost-effective and reliable systems.
