CA Engineering students to design cutting-edge water treatment

Unlike traditional drinking water treatment systems, which rely on chemicals to remove contaminants, microfiltration treatment systems use polymeric fibers to remove organisms and bacteria.

Southern California has been recognized for its cutting-edge wastewater recycling operations.  An example is Orange County’s GroundWater Replenishment Program, which will be the model for water recycling in an Australian coastal metropolis.

Another example is the Yucaipa Valley Water District’s regional water filtration facility, “which uses microfiltration and nanofiltration technologies to purify and soften water with limited use of chemicals.”

Engineering students from Cal Poly Pomona, toured the cutting-edge drinking water treatment to draw inspiration as they design a wastewater treatment plant for the future.
