Last month The New York Times published an online article explaining the marvels of New York City's water distribution system. The article follows the path of water collected in the Delaware and Catskill watersheds to the homes of New York City. It's an easy and informative read and includes some fun graphics.
Of interest to us was the section about the Catskill/ Delaware UV Facility, which is the world's largest UV disinfection facility with a capacity to treat an amazing two billion gallons of drinking water each day. And, we're proud to say, TrojanUVTorrent technology provides the UV treatment!
A little closer to home, in spring 2010 TrojanUVTorrent technology was selected as the supplier of UV disinfection at the Coquitlam Water Treatment Plant upgrade. The installation includes eight reactors, and has a capacity of 1,200 million liters of water per day. More information about the environmental advantages of this technology and it's application in the Coquitlam Plant are presented in TrojanUV's case study "UV Disinfection - Coquitlam Water Treatment Plant, METRO Vancouver, British Columbia".

The Terrence J. O'Brien Water Reclamation Plant (Plant) in Skokie, Illinois opened last month, and was the first among the top 10 largest wastewater plants in the U.S. to implement UV disinfection. The upgrades, including installation of TrojanUV's TrojanUVSigna, will improve water quality within the Chicago Area Waterways System and will help protect the region's drinking water supply in Lake Michigan.
The Plant serves more than 1.3 million people across an area of 370 square kilometres; less than half the area of the City of Calgary. With a peak flow of 525 million gallons of wastewater per day, the TrojanUVSigna is an integral part of the Plant!
