Evoqua announced the successful installation and commissioning of two ETS-UV systems for Rushville, Indiana’s initiative to support a “Living Greener” life.
Evoqua was selected to supply two ETS-UV SW-1250-20 ultraviolet (UV) disinfection systems to complete the Rushville’s Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Long Term Control Plan.
UV disinfection is an efficient, low cost and an environmentally friendly way to disinfect water. The process is safer for operators and the community; UV is a chemical free process that adds nothing to the water.
Unlike chlorine, UV disinfection is able to inactivate pathogens such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium. Discharged wastewater with these pathogens can be dangerous for drinking water supplies and recreational water, Evoqua said.
ETS-UV systems were selected because of the compact design, least number of components and unique product features, the company claims.
“Applying UV disinfection technology is an environmentally friendly option for cities to meet the challenges associated with combined sewer overflow. The process protects wetlands, aquatic species and supports a healthy ecological habitat,” said Jon McClean, VP of Research, Development and Engineering, Aquatics and Disinfection.
