U-V Disinfection System To Be Placed at the Cypress Water Treatm - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

U-V Disinfection System To Be Placed at the Cypress Water Treatment Plant

An ultraviolet disinfection system for the water reuse project will soon be installed at the Cypress Water Treatment Plant in Wichita Falls.

The U-V disinfection system will cost $224,000.

“It's designed for disinfection.  It's designed to kill that type of stuff that causes waterborne diseases, said Public Works Director for Wichita Falls, Russell Schreiber.

Schreiber also told Newschannel 6 that so far, no waterborne diseases have been detected throughout the reuse process past the micro-filtration step.

“If something were to happen, if it ever gets through, this U-V disinfection system would kill it," said Schreiber.

In July of this year when the reuse project went online, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality sent a letter of approval stating that if this project operated longer than six months, a U-V disinfection system would need to be added.

Wichita Falls city leaders feel that Bowles Construction, a local company is capable of completing the installation of the U-V disinfection system in a timely manner.

Schreiber is hoping the installation process for the U-V disinfection system will be complete by the end of January.
