Adding Particles to Remove Turbidity and Organics with High Rate Chemical Treatment
Consumers Pennsylvania Water Company, Shenango Valley Division operates a 14MGD conventional surface water treatment plant located in Sharon, Pennsylvania. The plant consists of several iterations of upgrades that date from 1910 to 1986. The State Regulatory Agency had conducted filter performance testing through particle removal efficiencies. Two testing periods had produced unsatisfactory removal of particles through the treatment process. The Public Utility Commission performed management audits that had identified high plant operation and maintenance costs. The Company embarked on a plan to determine the most cost-effective method to upgrade the facility to reduce operating and maintenance costs and provide the level of performance that will be required to meet today’s standards as well as future water quality standards.
