There’s really no difference in water treatment services for Public Water Systems, right? We think there is.
We get asked this a lot. Maybe not in these exact words, but customers are always questioning service repairs and the cost of service. Let’s look at two recent examples.
Recently, we provided a quote to remove and replace exhausted anion media that was being used to remove uranium. I noticed I had been contacted about this last year, but we didn’t get hired for the job. It surprised me that this service needed to be done again just a year later. As I looked into the site, I found out the service company last year replaced the media with the wrong media. It lasted less than a year when it should have lasted many years. That company just didn’t have the knowledge they needed to help this PWS stay in compliance on uranium removal.
We were recently brought in to another uranium treatment site where the blended water was out of compliance. The media treating one well was replaced, yet the blend of the treated and untreated wells was still too high. We were asked to provide a quote on a larger treatment system so the media could last longer. Rather than just provide a quote, we looked into what else could happen to cause this violation. They assured us everything had been considered as it was looked at by not only their service companies but two engineers. We were finally allowed to sample all the wells and we found that the untreated wells had changed. The uranium in those wells was too high for the dilution to work.
So, is there really a difference in water treatment service for Public Water Systems? Absolutely yes! Over 25 years of serving the industry provides us with the knowledge and experience to frequently find ways, that others have missed, to repair or improve the performance of existing treatment systems.
