25 Years of Water Reuse Experience
Our involvement in water reuse began over 25 years ago.This is when research initiatives began to demonstrate the efficacy of using ultraviolet light for high-level disinfection and reuse.
The safety and environmental advantages of UV (relative to chlorine), were already well-known. However, further research was needed to demonstrate that UV was as effective as chlorine, if not more so – for high-level reuse. In addition, full-scale systems were installed to test and permit UV-oxidation for contaminant destruction enabling wastewater to be treated and recycled for potable uses.
Trojan is proud to have participated in those early studies and provide UV systems for the first municipalities to adopt UV.
Our UV-oxidation systems are the final stage of a three-part advanced treatment process that treats wastewater to standards that exceed those for drinking water. Treated water is used to replenish groundwater or to augment drinking water reservoirs.
