Re-use Water Overview
Population growth, dry climates combined with heavy irrigation/agricultural demands have made advanced treatment and reuse of wastewater a practical solution and necessity. Combined with upstream media or membrane filtration UV can produce a high quality pathogen free effluent for various recreational and agricultural applications.
Aquionics systems have been installed for reuse applications such as aquifer storage recharge, wetland discharge, sanitary flushing and golf course irrigation as well as low discharge or non-detect applications for recreational purposes such as beach runoff, and reducing discharge to sensitive rivers and lakes for the last 15 years.
The Ultraviolet Disinfection Guidelines for Drinking Water and Water Reuse (2003 UV Guidelines), published by the National Water Research Institute (NWRI) and American Water Works Association Research Foundation (AwwaRF), provides a framework for microbiological verification, design and operation of UV disinfection systems for reclaimed water application. Many US states such as California, Florida, Hawaii, Arizona and Washington have endorsed these guidelines and refer to them when evaluating UV reuse applications and designs.
Aquionics is compliant with the NWRI (Title 22) Guidelines and have installed many units that have received conditional acceptance from several states, including California. The Aquionics InLine+R UV systems were the first closed vessel UV systems to receive NWRI acceptance.
