City of Fayetteville to Host HyDOZ® Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
June 2, 2017
The City of Fayetteville, Ark. will host a public ribbon cutting ceremony in honor of BlueInGreen's HyDOZ® solution at the Paul R. Noland Wastewater Treatment Facility (1400 N. Foxhunter Road) on Thursday, June 8 at 9:30 a.m. Refreshments and tours of the facility will be offered.
The City of Fayetteville contracted CH2M to manage the City’s wastewater facilities in 1987. This 30-year partnership is a leader in the sustainable environmental policy sector – with many municipalities looking to recreate what has been achieved in Fayetteville.
In the summer of 2012, the City and CH2M began evaluating disinfection alternatives to upgrade its current wastewater treatment system, as well as address the removal of emerging contaminants of concern (ECC). The treatment facility, which included primary clarification, activated sludge, secondary clarification and sand filtration, chose to pilot BlueInGreen's state-of-the-art ozone disinfection system, the HyDOZ.
Initial project data showed that the ozone dissolution system used less energy than the existing UV system. Final pilot results revealed that the HyDOZ reduced nearly twice as many contaminants as the UV system and removed over half of the contaminants to below detection limits.
“We are very pleased to see that a local company is providing industry-leading water treatment technology that helps us achieve both our water quality and financial goals,” said Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan.
Due to the pilot program’s success, the City and CH2M selected BlueInGreen to provide a full-scale installation of its HyDOZ solution. Fayetteville’s innovative ozone disinfection system is the first of its kind globally at a wastewater treatment facility.
