The City of Pascagoula, Mississippi turned to Osmonics of Minnetonka, Minn., to provide a viable solution for the removal of undesired characteristics from their water supply, ensuring compliance with existing and 2001 EPA regulations. Osmonics' process of combining low energy RO in tandem with ozone generation and contacting equipment proved to be the optimal solution to Pascagoula's water deficiencies.
