TCE & Pocatello's Ozone Feasibility Study

There are three objectives to the City’s ozone feasibility study:

Determine size and scale for pilot treatment system at well 14. Purchase and/or build components necessary to construct and operate the system.

Successful treatment means the system can operate safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively. The TCE contaminated water must meet federal drinking water standards without adverse side effects such as significantly changing the pH level, color, or taste of the water. The system must not adversely impact surrounding properties, i.e. noise, sight, and smell.

The system must be able to be scaled to full-size and operate successfully, i.e. ability to treat up to 2,000 gpm with a VOC reduction of 95% at the point of discharge, to operate on a mobile scale at individual wellheads.
