Pilot Study Makes The Grade: Green Sand Filtration And Reverse Osmosis Proves Fast, Reliable, And Cost-EfficientSource: H2O Innovation
Seeing its water treatment plant becoming obsolete, the City of Winkler took action to improve it. Since the City was time restricted, the administration chose an unconventional approach: create a new engineering department led by an engineer with strong water knowledge to design and supervise the project. By doing so, the City had a hands-on approach which made the project move along quickly.
The project was realized by the City’s new engineering department who teamed up with H2O Innovation, North American leader in the design of custom-built high performance water treatment solutions. Based on a pilot unit testing, they identified the best process chain: a green sand filtration pre-treatment followed by reverse osmosis. This system, considered as the most reliable and cost efficient, would also meet the City’s expectations and ensure on-schedule delivery and start-up.
