  • Nation’s Largest Seawater Desalination Plant Enhances Water Supply Reliability For San Diego County
    state to have a zero net carbon footprint The Carlsbad plant uses reverse osmosis to produce approximately 10 percent of the region s water supply it is a core supply regardless of weather conditions and it is blended with water from other sources for regional distribution It costs less than 0 5 cents to produce a gallon of drinking water at the plant Desalinated water will cost typical homeowners in the region about an additional 5 per month in line with the low end of projections when the project was launched in late 2012 The costs are already factored into the Water Authority s 2016 rates Dedication of the Carlsbad Desalination Plant marks a major milestone in California water history said Mark Weston chair of the Water Authority s Board of Directors The Water Authority and its member agencies have been aggressively diversifying the region s water supply for decades and the Carlsbad Desalination Plant is a major component of that effort We crafted a strategy of conservation and innovation in the early 1990s and today it is protecting our 218B economy and the quality of life enjoyed by 3 2 million residents The Claude Bud Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant opens a new chapter in water supply reliability for the San Diego region and the state by tapping the potential of the Pacific Ocean and reducing dependence on strained resources such as the Sacramento San Joaquin Bay Delta It is bolstering the San Diego region s self reliance and in turn its future Since the drought of 1987 92 the Water Authority has transformed the region s water supply mix by implementing the nation s largest agriculture to urban water conservation and transfer agreement with the Imperial Irrigation District securing additional long term highly reliable Colorado River water supplies through canal lining projects in the Imperial Valley and by assisting local member agencies in developing their own local water sources In addition the Water Authority has helped to reduce regional per capita potable water use by 39 percent since 1990 through legislation education incentives and other measures to promote conservation The strategy has worked so well that even in the fifth year of drought the Water Authority has 99 percent of the water supplies it would need to meet normal demands this year Poseidon Water is a private company that partners with public agencies to deliver water infrastructure projects The company s primary focus is developing large scale reverse osmosis seawater desalination plants and Poseidon is developing a second desalination facility in Huntington Beach Calif The Carlsbad Desalination Project included 1 5 million hours of work in Carlsbad Vista and San Marcos supporting an estimated 2 500 jobs and infusing 350M into the local economy Project partners included the Water Authority Poseidon Water IDE Technologies Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners and Kiewit Shea Desalination After 30 years of operation at the Carlsbad plant the Water Authority has the option but not the obligation to purchase the plant for 1 The agency also

  • Humic Acid Recovery New Tech Claims Economic Benefits
    water treatment plants to recover humic acid during treatment Dutch water supply company Vitens is marketing the technology as a potential money saver for companies who use it since humic acid is valuable in other industries Companies such as BioAg already market humic acid to farmers Humic acid is a fantastic soil conditioner and better for dry broadcast and soil soil less application according to BioAg Vitens teamed up with consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV to handle the marketing in a partnership announced this year The marketing campaign will stress the economic benefits of the technology while also pegging it as a sustainability tool In 2013 Vitens won an award for its humic acid recovery tech Vitens developed a technology to filter and process humic acid as a by product from its drinking water treatment At several production locations Vitens uses ion exchange to remove humus acids from the ground water Normally the humus fraction is considered waste and disposed of according to the Netherlands Water Partnership The jury at the award ceremony said the technology was a twist on conventional resource recovery technologies since it arose out of the drinking water industry instead of the wastewater sector We re used to seeing resource recovery technologies being developed in the waste water treatment sector said Professor Cees Buisman a jury member This is rare in the drinking water field and has never been seen on this scale before I live in the area of the Netherlands where this technology was trailed and we ve always had brown water Now we have normal clear drinking water while the removed substances are being sold as a high value product to farmers This is the essence of a win win situation he continued In Europe treatment facilities generally use a chemical process to extract humic
