To meet the needs of the greater Tucson Metropolitan area, Tucson Water is exploring potable reuse as a means to diversify and expand their water portfolio. To this end, a six-month pilot test of an innovative and sustainable potable reuse treatment scheme was conducted under a tailored collaboration project between CH2M, Tucson Water and University of Arizona for the WateReuse Research Foundation (WRRF-13-09).

The treatment process evaluated in this research used a combination of processes, including short-term soil aquifer treatment, side-stream nanofiltration, ozone oxidation, biological activated carbon filtration, and granular activated carbon adsorption. These processes provide multiple pathogen and organic barriers and achieve a significant degree of salinity reduction while producing less concentrate with significantly lower salinity than reverse osmosis based plants, creating more options for concentrate disposal.

The process arrangement was designed to achieve the project’s potable reuse treatment requirements (provide multiple barriers for pathogens and organics and partial TDS removal) while minimizing project capital and operating costs. Successful demonstration of this alternative potable reuse scheme has the potential for application at a variety of inland locations that lack the less costly concentrate disposal method of ocean discharge.

This webcast will present an overview of the treatment scheme as well as the major results and conclusions from the pilot study.
