Aqueous Vets announces award of VOC treatment systems for the City of Pomona, CA
Aqueous Vets (AV) is pleased to be a team member with MOCON and Water Works Engineers in the design-build project for the Chino Basin VOC Treatment Plant. AV’s experience supplying large sized GAC systems for treatment of water using activated carbon technology in California was considered far greater than that of any other supplier.
AV’s project management and delivery team has more than 75 years of direct experience designing, fabricating and installing large field erected systems for the treatment of groundwater, process water and waste water with activated carbons.
Our team has been responsible for the design and installation of more than 500 systems over the course of 25 years and has introduced owners to leading vessel designs that have now become industry standards. AV has delivered vessels offering the best in design and material.
The City of Pomona is committed to delivering the highest quality of potable water for its consumers that meets or exceeds current drinking water standards. The City obtains more than half of its potable water supply from groundwater production wells in the Chino Basin. This groundwater has been impacted by contaminants. In response, the City uses treatment systems to ensure that it meets its commitment.
Currently, the City plans to add Wellhead Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) treatment systems at three wells to optimize production in Chino Basin. The proposed design-build project addresses the City’s goal of providing potable supply water while maximizing the cost effective use of budgeted funds to complete the project on time, with minimal disruption to ongoing operations and surrounding community. The Mocon-WWE-AV Team was selected based on the best combination of capabilities, project experience, proven performance, and value to meet the City of Pomona’s needs. Aqueous Vets is responsible for providing three (3) twelve-foot diameter 20,000 pound GAC systems for parallel or lead-lag operation, system header and bypass piping and the specified activated carbon.
