Today we are in Aurora, Colorado finishing installation of a new UV disinfection system at Aurora's Sand Creek Water Reuse Facility. The 17-year old system had limited turndown capabilities and manual-only cleaning – meaning it was inefficient in terms of both energy and operations. The old 864-lamp system is being replaced with just 32 highly-automated lamps in the channel. Here, Aurora's SCWRF lead and WateReuse Board Member Richard Leger discusses startup with Carollo's Nathan Evenson.
Last long bus ride today, this time to Hadera to talk about novel concentrate minimization systems. Mehul, Chris, and I are fighting over who gets to bring this technology home.
Many thanks from the NWRI team to our gracious Israeli hosts at IDE. Thanks Yoav, Lior, Udi, and team!
Next stop, USA...
No work today; Old Jerusalem, Jewish Quarter, Muslim Quarter, David's Tomb, Western Wall (photo, with yours truly at the wall and Mehul Patel (OCWD) behind), Temple Mount, site of crucifixion, West Bank, Dead Sea...amazing day.
In Jerusalem today, meeting with the City's top water scientists to discuss advanced water quality monitoring. Learned some exciting innovations on source control monitoring for potable reuse. Planning on bringing that technology back West!
Today the NWRI team worked through the latest research and innovations from IDE, starting in Kadima at their headquarters and then finishing at the RO demonstration in Herzliya.
After a hearty breakfast, today was all work with the project team touring two 100+ MGD seawater desalination facilities in Ashkelon and Sorek. We had some good discussions about pressure vessels, pressure centers, power recovery devices, and ways to minimize fouling.
Part of the expert panel (that could stay awake) headed out to dinner with a professor from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Avner Adin), the CEO of Adin Holdings (Ranaan Adin) and family. Dinner conversation focused heavily on risk reduction, advanced water system monitoring, and the need to add magnesium to our desalinated water supplies. Great stuff!!!
Long travel day for the expert team from the US. First night stay in Tel Aviv with a view of the 10,000 year old town of Jaffa.
WateReuse California getting down to business, fun, sun, dancing and alternative water supply! Go Guy and John!
