Mini Water Plant Tests New Treatment Method

Starting in August, the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Partnership will create a miniature version of the proposed water treatment plant to test the new ozone process. The mini plant, called a "pilot plant" by engineers, will be located at the treatment plant and tested for about nine months (August 2011 through winter 2012). The pilot plant will operate like a regular plant, but on a much smaller scale – producing just 250,000 gallons per day. Water produced by the pilot plant will be analyzed (for taste, odor, and containments) at the water treatment plant laboratory and in independent, State-certified labs. This effort will provide important information about the water quality improvements that can be expected from ozone treatment. To read more about the Pilot Plant please click here...
