Kansas Wastewater Treatment Plant Makes A Long-Overdue UV System Upgrade (Case Study)

The UV disinfection system at the Plant 20 Wastewater Treatment Plant was installed in 2002, but over the years staff continued to struggle with PLC and controls-related issues, ballast failures, and water level management. An overhead crane was needed to operate the water level management device, and water level fluctuations of 12” were common, which contributed to an increase in fouling on the quartz sleeves.

So, when they were informed that it would take approximately $150,000 to keep the aging UV system operational, Unified Government and its Water Pollution Control Department decided to look into other UV equipment suppliers and investigate another UV disinfection solution. They were looking for a UV solution that would provide them with a better user experience and be easier to maintain.
