Update on Second Surface Water Treatment System

Last week, we completed five months of construction and began officially operating a surface water treatment system at a location near the Northland Lutheran Retirement Community between West Bay Shore Drive and Pine Beach Road. This technology will treat and remove PFOA and PFOS compounds from the waterbody known as “Ditch B”.

A similar system has been in place for several months at the Fire Technology Center (FTC) property. To date, that system has treated more than 25.5 million gallons of water from “Ditch A.” We recently shared a video tour of that system. You can watch it here.
