KC, on behalf of the Village of Woodbury and the WP3 Subdivision Project, designed modifications to the Trout Brook Water Supply and Treatment facility located on New York Route 32 in the Village of Woodbury.
The Trout Brook Water Treatment Plant is integrated into the Town of Woodbury’s Consolidated Water District, which serves the residential development known as WP3.
The water system was originally designed to provide only disinfection via chlorination. Subsequent laboratory testing results of the wells indicated that TW-02 and TW-04 were ground water sources under the direct influence of surface water (GWUDI).
KC designed a filtration and ultraviolet (UV) treatment system to treat the water produced at this facility.
The filtration system consists of a series of two municipal high-pressure filter housing units, each with an allowable flow rate of 500 GPM sized to handle the combined discharge rate of all three wells.
The first filter housing unit, a Harmsco Model No. MUNI-5-4FL-304 HP, utilized five nominally rated 5-micron filter cartridges, while a second Harmsco housing unit contained five 1-micron absolute filter cartridges.
After the filters, an Aquionics UV Technology InLine+D 450 treatment system was installed. The system consists of one UV unit capable of operating at a flow rate of 364 GPM, while providing a minimum 40 mJ/cm2 dosage with a minimum UVT of 94%.
The additional filtration and UV treatment will ensure safe drinking water for all Village residents.
