For the fourth year, Water Quality Products (WQP) is honoring residential and commercial/industrial water treatment projects utilizing innovative solutions and technologies with its 2013 Top Project awards.
This year, we are happy to recognize three winners:
Dead Sea Saltwater Soaking Pool, Malibu, Calif.: This residential swimming pool mimics the exact water quality of the Dead Sea using salt from the sea itself. The project required a pretreatment system for the water-salt mixture, as well as solutions to combat system deterioration due to the extreme salt levels.
Mathworks Central Drinking Water System, Natick, Mass.: When software company The Mathworks Inc. opted for a reverse osmosis (RO) system for its headquarters campus, water efficiency was a concern. An RO wastewater reclamation system allows the company to reuse RO discharge for toilet flushing.
Robert Mondavi Winery Water Treatment Systems, Oakville, Calif.: This Napa Valley winery has specific water quality needs in order to craft its wines. Solutions include activated carbon treatment for barrel washing water, mixed-bed deionization for laboratory water, a silica removal system for the facility’s misters and more.
For more details on the winners, look out for WQP’s December 2013 Reference Guide.
