Drought and climate change in California have placed added strain on already limited water sources. Treating municipal wastewater for reuse is a reliable and safe option to help reduce reliance on imported water supplies and provide clean, potable water to residents.
The Orange County Water District (OCWD) has long been an innovative leader in indirect potable reuse. Their Groundwater Replenishment System (GWRS) uses FilmTec™ Reverse Osmosis elements to help produce 100 million gallons of safe drinking water per day for Southern California residents.
As part of OCWD’s long-term strategy to further increase efficiency and productivity, DuPont Water Solutions’ advanced reverse osmosis membranes were installed. Read the full case study for more details on how they lowered the energy required to treat the same amount of water by 13% compared to the performance of existing membranes in the original facility.
In addition, watch the below video to learn about the innovative ways the private and public sector are collaborating to reclaim wastewater, and see how this advanced water purification facility transforms wastewater into a reliable source of clean water.
