Xylem has been selected as water technology solutions provider to the PureWater Colorado Demonstration Project, which aims to demonstrate direct potable reuse as a safe, reliable and sustainable drinking water source.
Denver Water has partnered with Carollo Engineers, WateReuse Colorado and Xylem on the project, which is located at the Denver Water Recycling Plant and will run during the month of April this year. Some of the water produced will be used to brew beer to raise awareness among the general public about this water purification process.
Water reuse is part of Colorado’s Water Plan to reduce the amount of water diverted from rivers and streams, creating a sustainable, efficient way to extend the state’s water supplies.
Xylem business development manager Steve Green said: “We are very excited to be part of this forward-looking, important project that aims to promote a sustainable, reliable and safe drinking water treatment process,” said Steve Green, Xylem business development manager. “It is crucial that we implement sustainable solutions, like water reuse, to meet future water needs.”
A range of Xylem's solutions including a Wedeco MiPRO advanced oxidation process pilot system and a Leopold granulated activated carbon filter pilot will be used in the project which features a unique treatment train.
