Safe, Energy Efficient Disinfection For 45 MGD Combined Sewer WWTP Improves Water Quality

The Hudson River, in the Capital District of Albany, NY, is a popular recreational area for boating, swimming and fishing. Unfortunately combined sewer overflows following storm events and snow melt from sewer systems dating back to the 1800’s were causing increased fecal coliform counts which in turn resulted in health alerts and limited access to the river. After considering several alternatives, the Albany County Sewer District selected a Wedeco Duron 60i2-2.5X4, with high power Ecoray 600W lamps, for their disinfection system.

Read the full case study to learn how the ACSD is confident that, thanks to the reliability of the Wedeco Duron UV system, the effluent leaving the South WWTP is free of dangerous fecal coliform, making the Hudson River cleaner and safer for everyone.
