Also Ends Maintenance Burden; Change to be Expanded to Second WTP

The water treatment plants (WTP’s) manager for the city of Midlothian, TX reports significant reduction in chemical costs, gaining new management control for their generation and feed equipment, and ending a pesky maintenance burden, by switching to three-precursor vacuum generator-feed, from batch-generator-pumping, for introducing chlorine dioxide (ClO2) into their 8 MGD plant #2. As a result, he plans to make the same change at their 12 MGD plant #1.
