PLANNING AND FEASIBILITY STUDY OF WATER RECLAMATION FOR BENEFICIAL REUSE IN A KANSAS COMMUNITY
Abstract:The City of Hutchinson, Kansas would build a (6.0 MGD) reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration plant to further refine water subjected to upstream air stripping for removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The secondary RO filtration would remove high levels of chloride and mineral contamination immune to air stripping. The City would then blend the high quality water from the two-stage process into the municipal water system to increase supply; elevate the overall quality, and eliminate regulatory agency concerns about discharging high chlorideeffluent into surface streams after air stripping. To further meet demand through 2030, the City would seek rights to unused allocations of the aquifer. In addition to population growth, the improved water supply plan would support economic development.
