Abstract

This project evaluated the feasibility of an alternative non-RO-based potable reuse treatment scheme that produces highly purified water. To meet the needs of the greater Tucson Metropolitan area, Tucson Water is exploring potable reuse as a means to diversify and expand their water portfolio. Thus, a six-month pilot test of an innovative and sustainable potable reuse treatment scheme was conducted under a tailored collaboration project. The treatment processes evaluated included short-term soil aquifer treatment, side-stream nanofiltration, ozone, biological activated carbon filtration, and granular activated carbon adsorption.
