Purpose of the Project

  • To create an effective, safe and economical treatment.
  • To bring the values of the processed water in the plant, below the acceptable values, to reduce the chlorine smell in city lines to minimum levels.

  • By the project, have been reached to maximum job safety.
  • Maximum security level has been reached within and around the facility.
  • A decrease of up to 50% was observed in the ratio of TTHM.
  • Maximum levels of job safety have been reached.
  • Foreign dependence of the institution occurs during the purchase step of chlorine, which is produced by a limited number of manufacturers, has been eliminated by institution started to produce their own hypochlorite.

 

Savings By The Project
