To address algae growth, the Santa Clara Valley Water District chose to cover its tube settlers with GTI's strucuturally supported covers. That choice allowed its treatment plant to successfully reduce algae and cut back chlorine feed. The plant is expected to recover the cost of the covers and save an additional $500,000 over the lifetime of the covers.Read More
Disinfectant By‑Product Reduction
GTI covers can reduce the amount of disinfectant chemicals required during the water treatment process. This is achieved by blocking sunlight.
Chemical reduction not only minimizes the formation of disinfectant by-products (DBPs), thereby improving water quality, but it also yields significant cost savings.
