Texas town reclaims 4 Ml/d from treatment plant

A new membrane desalination plant at Horizon, Texas is reclaiming wastewater from an existing reverse osmosis treatment plant at more than 4 Ml/d.

The water recovered by a system built and installed by industrial water treatment firm, Progressive Water Treatment (PWT), is blended with raw well water for use as drinking water. According to PWT the new systems have operated at more than 99% efficiency since their commissioning.

“Horizon City is now able to use this water as a source for drinking water. That’s over a million gallons per day that the city doesn’t have to treat, which could serve up to a third of its population’s needs.”” said president of PWT, Marc Stevens.

Designer, builder and service provider, PWT, is the first company in a newly-formed group, OriginClear Group.

”As corporations increasingly outsource their water treatment, companies like PWT are stepping in to serve them,” said OriginClear’s chief executive, Riggs Eckelberry.
“We intend to help unify these outsourced water services companies for the benefit of outsourcing customers across North America and eventually, the world,” Eckelberry said.
