This year, much of the Western US stands threatened by drought and 90% of the region faces one of its most intense water shortages of the last 20 years. This will put considerable pressure on regional water supplies, agriculture, and could play a role in aggravating wildfires. Challenges like these have driven innovation in water management and treatment technologies. Ultraviolet disinfection (UV) has become a key component in enabling wastewater reuse.

Seeking to provide support to states highly affected by water scarcity, among them, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and Colorado, UV Pure® Technologies Inc. (UV Pure) has taken initial steps to obtain validation and approval for unrestricted reuse applications.

To qualify for these applications, UV Pure must meet the stringent water disinfection standards set by the California Code of Regulations, Title 22 and is set out to do so by the end of this year.

At UV Pure, we see water reuse technology as an important tool for reducing the strain on existing water supply by producing high-quality reuse water. This water can reduce scarcity and be produced at a much lower life-cycle cost compared to developing a new water supply.

The Hallett-1000 series, validated in accordance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (US EPA) Ultraviolet Disinfection Guidance Manual (UVDGM), is pursuing Title 22 validation in an effort to provide a versatile solution capable of matching a customer’s water quality, operation conditions, and discharge requirements. This model combines technological features that deliver operational resiliency for reuse applications, providing economic value and environmental benefits.

UV Pure remains committed to providing safe water by expanding its services to safely address the goals of water conservation and reuse programs through regulated standards and will continue to dedicate itself to solving the world’s most challenging water issues.
