Water treatment provider OriginClear says that a system built by its wholly owned subsidiary, Dallas-based Progressive Water Treatment, is recovering 700 gallons per minute (gpm) of previously rejected water at the existing reverse osmosis (RO) treatment plant in Horizon City, Texas.
The recovered water is being blended with raw well water for consumption as city drinking water. “That’s over a million gallons per day that the city doesn’t have to treat,” says Marc Stevens, PWT’s president.
PWT fabricated and installed dual 350 gpm RO systems to recover reject water from existing, primary RO systems. According to Stevens, the new systems have operated at more than 99 percent efficiency since their commissioning.
PWT is the first company in the newly formed OriginClear Group of water service companies and is a designer, builder and service provider for a wide range of industrial water treatment applications. OriginClear acquired PWT in August.
