Mission Viejo and Gallatin to Install BlueInGreen's StreamLineCO2 System
Water treatment company delivers two more pH adjustment systems after debuting groundbreaking product line in October
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (February 15, 2017) - BlueInGreen has announced installations of its innovative StreamLineCO2 system in the cities of Mission Viejo, Calif. and Gallatin, Mo. At WEFTEC 2016 in New Orleans, the company officially unveiled StreamLine, an advanced water treatment technology specifically designed to deliver industry-leading efficiency at a lower upfront cost.
Featuring some of the smallest sidestream flow rates and lowest pumping costs on the market, StreamLineCO2 will offer operators precise treatment control while automatically stabilizing pH levels. Each skid-mounted and factory-tested system is designed to reduce carbon dioxide costs, power consumption and water usage in the process.
“StreamLine is a direct result of BlueInGreen’s ongoing commitment to meet the needs of our end users, both technically and financially,” said National Sales Manager Thomas Sichz. “I think the immediate demand for this more economical water treatment method really speaks for itself. There is no one way to treat water, and our team is dedicated to delivering a wide variety of solutions to treat a diverse range of applications.”
The StreamLineCO2 system was delivered to Mission Viejo in December 2015 and will be operated by the Santa Margarita Water District. The state-of-the-art dissolution system was custom-designed to deliver carbon dioxide to supplement Lake Mission Viejo, which historically has struggled with drought issues. On average, the 124-acre lake loses 500,000 gallons each day to evaporation - enough water to supply 1,400 households a year.
The next generation treatment system, which was delivered by BlueInGreen in only six weeks to accommodate the district’s schedule, will combat drought issues by replacing potable water with 114 million gallons of advanced purified water. The project, which is the first of its kind in the state of California, will allow the Santa Margarita Water District to conserve valuable potable water while simultaneously making Lake Mission Viejo one of the nation’s largest swimmable lakes to implement advanced purified water.
“BlueInGreen was founded on innovation,” said Darryl Fendley, PE, Director of Engineering and Product Manager. “Our team is proud to be a part of groundbreaking applications, like the pH adjustment project at Lake Mission Viejo, and we’re happy to work with the Santa Margarita Water District as they continue to lead the nation in advanced purified water treatment.”
Another StreamLineCO2 installation is scheduled to begin operation later this year at the City of Gallatin’s new water treatment facility. At the city-owned and operated 600,000-gallon-per-day facility, the StreamLineCO2 unit will deliver carbon dioxide for pH adjustment and stabilization of potable water.
An ideal example of StreamLineCO2’s overall added value, the project initially bid in March 2015 but went over budget. After value engineering, the consultants released the project to rebid in 2016. This allowed BlueInGreen to win the job with its StreamlineCO2 system, capable of meeting the process and performance requirements with a lower capital cost.
Along with the carbon dioxide delivery system, BlueInGreen’s successful bid included custom pH monitoring instrumentation as well as carbon dioxide storage equipment. The cost savings realized were an integral part of helping the project move forward from bidding to construction.
“With limited funding and aging infrastructure, some communities and their consultants are becoming less concerned with overall lifecycle costs and more focused on affordable treatment in the immediate future,” said Sichz. “Whether you want to save now or over time, our solutions offer the most efficient water treatment technology on the market.”
BlueInGreen’s StreamLine product offering includes three revolutionary solutions for water quality: StreamLineO2 for aeration and odor control, StreamLineCO2 for pH adjustment and StreamLineO3 for oxidation. Each of the systems is specifically designed to deliver highly dissolved oxygen, carbon dioxide and ozone, respectively, while significantly reducing initial costs.
The introduction of StreamLine continues to solidify BlueInGreen’s growing influence in the water and wastewater treatment markets, having set consecutive sales records in 2015 and 2016. The company has also been recognized for its dedication to innovation in the U.S. and abroad, winning both the Global Cleantech Cluster Association’s (GCCA) Grand Prize and the Water Environment Federation’s (WEF) Innovative Technology Award in recent years.
“Our mission at BlueInGreen has always been to empower those responsible for water treatment,” said CEO and President Chris Milligan, PE. “Our product offerings and treatment methods will evolve over time to better fit customer needs, but our top priority will always be improving our most valuable shared resource.”
