Aqueous Vets (AV) is pleased to team with Auburn Constructors and Brown and Caldwell in the design-build project for the Nut Plains GAC Treatment System.
California American Water is committed to delivering the highest quality of potable water to its consumers, and provides a product that meets or exceeds current drinking water standards. As suggested by the U.S. EPA health advisory issued on May 19, 2016, California American Water seeks to ensure that potential levels of Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) in drinking water served to customers in California American Water’s Suburban Rosemont system remain below 70 parts per trillion (ppt).
California American Water selected our team to design, build, and install a GAC treatment system to ensure that it meets its commitment of providing high quality potable water to the community. California American Water does this while maximizing the use of budgeted funds to complete the project on time, and with minimal disruption to ongoing operations and surrounding community.
Aqueous Vets is providing two engineered low-profile GAC systems, each consisting of dual ten-foot diameter vessels that contain 20,000 pounds of granular activated carbon. Each system is configured for parallel or lead-lag operation and contains system header and bypass piping. At an overall height of less than 16-feet, the AV low-profile systems are designed to meet the building height code associated with the project site.
Aqueous Vets partnered with Integrity Municipal Systems, Process Solutions, Inc., and PAX Water Technologies to review the typical organic and inorganic contaminants that impact our groundwater, new emerging contaminants of concern, and selected treatment methods. We also explored the available disinfection and fluoridation options and the importance of how powerful tank mixing relates to the improvement of water quality in the distribution network.
