Catskill-Delaware UV Facility Opening Ceremony
In 2005, we were selected as the manufacturer for the UV portion of NYC drinking water project. In 2009 and 2010, we delivered 56 TrojanUVTorrent™ UV units to the Catskill/Delaware UV Facility. Each unit is capable of delivering a 40 mJ/cm 2 dose to 40 million gallons of water per day (MGD).
This disinfection requirement, set by the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, delivers greater than 3-log reduction of microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. We custom-designed our TrojanUVTorrent in order to meet the challenging design parameters of this unique project.
The Catskill/Delaware UV Facility is located in Valhalla, New York. The treatment train consists of screening, UV treatment, and chlorination (for a residual disinfectant in the distribution system).
