Mazzei Degas Separators Selected For Wichita Aquifer Project Mazzei Degas Separators Selected For Wichita Aquifer Project

A key component of the water supply plan for the City of Wichita, Kansas, was recharging the large aquifer that lies under the region with water from the Little Arkansas River. The river basin contains substantial farming operations which, during rain events, spike the river water with the commonly used herbicide Atrazine. Atrazine concentrations in the river frequently rose forcing the city to shutdown the bank filtration system. Advanced oxidation process (AOP) was selected to remove the herbicide. The AOP reactor’s design limited the amount of hydraulic backpressure it could tolerate. Consequently, Mazzei was challenged by the project’s design team to remove the entrained gas bubbles that remained from the prior oxidation treatment at a “not to exceed” hydrostatic backpressure of 19 feet.
