H2O Innovation's fast response to drought stricken California community

Alternext: MNEMO: ALHEO

QUEBEC CITY, March 3, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: HEO) – H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation" or the "Company"), leader in membrane filtration, is proud to have successfully delivered a containerized advanced water treatment system to the Cambria Community Service District, California ("Cambria") to help this community overcome the impact of a 10 year drought affecting the Golden State. The system, designed to be used during the dry months, produces a flow rate of 587 gpm (3,200 m3/d).

H2O Innovation, in a design-build collaboration with CDM Smith, designed, manufactured and commissioned a containerized water treatment system for Cambria. H2O Innovation's scope of supply for this project included six shipping containers housing ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) systems to treat a mix of brackish water, fresh water and secondary effluent. To treat such water, the filtration scheme starts with a pre-filtration strainer followed by a UF system. Following the UF system are two reverse osmosis trains while a third RO train further processes the concentrate of the first two RO trains to achieve an overall recovery of 92%. The chemical dosing systems and the SCADA room are mounted in independent containers which offer the operator a comfortable environment to work in.

Once fully treated, the water is compliant with indirect potable reuse regulations and is injected into a groundwater basin at the San Simeon Well Field to replenish the San Rosa Creek and San Simeon Creek aquifers that serve as fresh water sources for Cambria.

Only three months after H2O Innovation was given the order, the equipment arrived on site, and four weeks later, treated water was available. With this new UF-RO water treatment system in place, Cambria can now face the drought affecting central coastal California and provide its clients with sufficient high quality water. "Cambria is very satisfied with the system provided by H2O Innovation and the overall execution supervised by CDM Smith. We had a pressing need for a new water source and our problem was resolved promptly with this containerized water treatment system", said Jerry Gruber, General Manager at the Cambria Community Service District.  

The Cambria project is nominated at the Global Water Summit for desalination project of the year. Winner will be announced at the Summit in Athens this coming August.
