AdEdge Installs WaterPOD at Nevada Correctional Facility

System treats arsenic in well water

System treats arsenic in well water

The first AdEdge WaterPOD was loaded and shipped for startup in Carson City, Nev.

In June 2008, AdEdge was contacted by Brown & Caldwell of the Carson City office to assist with selection and design of an arsenic treatment system for the Humbolt Conservation Camp, a state Department of Corrections site near Winnemucca, to reduce arsenic in the well water to achieve the new arsenic drinking water standard of 10 parts per billion (ppb). The wells contained arsenic ranging from 17 to 22 ppb. A number of treatment options were considered and the AdEdge WaterPOD with a design flow of 250 gal per minute was chosen.

The AdEdge WaterPOD features an AdEdge APU33 packaged system with Bayoxide E33 granular ferric oxide media. The triplex 48-in.-diameter vessel manual integrated system was designed, fabricated by AdEdge and delivered to the site in October 2010. Since operation began, the system is removing arsenic to non-detectable levels.

Currently, AdEdge has another WaterPOD in production for Nisqually Industrial Park near Olympia, Wash. The system is an AD26 oxidation/filtration system for the removal of iron, manganese and arsenic.
