Environmental Wastewater Management
Surface Water Treatment
As groundwater can often be costly and inaccessible, an increasing number of industries, individuals, and municipalities rely on surface water from lakes, rivers, and other sources. Typically, the use of this water requires costly pre treatment to meet certain quality standards as surface water contains large quantities of suspended solids, bacteria, algae, and other organic matter. Ecosphere’s patented Ozonix® technology is a chemical free water treatment process that effectively removes contaminants in surface water – both cost-effectively and responsibly.
Soil and Groundwater Remediation
Clean, fertile soil is the lifeblood of our farmers, and a vast number of people around the world rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water. The contamination of either can have - and has had - catastrophic consequences. Ecosphere is leveraging its portfolio of innovative green technology solutions to help operators cost-effectively remove existing pollutants from both soil and ground water through innovative disinfection and sterilization solutions.
Storm and Drainage Water Treatment
Stormwater runoff and drainage water are two of the most significant sources of surface water pollution. When precipitation flows over paved surfaces, it carries all manner of pollutants (from nitrogen and phosphorous, to pesticides and metals) to surrounding lakes, streams, rivers, and wetlands. As a result, many municipalities now require developers to have storm and drainage water management plans. The inclusion of Ecosphere’s proven water treatment services and technologies will help ensure that these water management plans are effective, cost-efficient, and can maximize environmental benefits.
