This presentation discusses the implementation of a new $30 million state-of-the-art Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Treatment Facility that the Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) started constructing in November 2010. When operational, GCWW will be the largest water utility in North America to use UV treatment following sand filtration and Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) absorption.

The 19,600 square foot UV facility, being built at GCWW’s Richard Miller Treatment Plant, will further enhance water quality and protect against potential disease-causing protozoa such as cryptosporidium. The addition of UV disinfection will provide a state-of-the-art multi-barrier treatment process to enhance water quality and further protect the public’s health.
