The Abbotsford Central Water Treatment Plant was completed in 1997. The 1 million gallon a day plant utilizes ozone to provide primary disinfection. Chlorine is injected into the treated water for residual disinfection.
The Central WTP relies heavily on the 3 original large diameter dug wells and 6 low yielding granite bedrock wells.
The 200 gram/hour negative pressure ozone system provides 3 log removal of giardia disinfection level. Using turbine diffusers to inject the ozone/gas stream into the raw water also provides for VOC removal.
