TRWD COPPER PILOT TEST RESULT
"Results from the pilot study demonstrated that Fortress System is an effective approach to add copper at concentrations that are recommended for zebra mussel attachment prevention (i.e., in the 10 to 60 ppb as Cu ions) in the Eagle Mountain Pipeline. Copper concentrations remained relatively constant during intermittent operation of the pumps."
PROTECTING YOUR WATER INFRASTRUCTURE
Quagga and Zebra mussel infestation of lakes, rivers and dams has left water intake structures susceptible to fouling. Critical components in your water intake system vulnerable to zebra mussels include your trash racks, penstocks, and turbine head-covers, intake pipes, cooling systems and pump strainers among other important instrumentations.
In addition to reducing water flow, zebra mussels degrade water quality by producing pseudofeces thereby increasing organic matter in raw water. In severe cases mussel fouling has caused disruption of service and led to high costs of emergency remediation.
THE ONLY EPA REGISTERED ULTRA LOW DOSE YET HIGHLY EFFECTIVE MUSSEL CONTROL
Fortress MC Systems offer a proactive, reliable, cost effective, long term solution for protecting your raw water intake and distribution system from zebra mussels. Fortress MC Systems protect your raw water intake and piping system by using an highly effective ultra low dose of ions, as low as 10ppb (10ug/L), well below EPA's MCL of 1300ppb (1.3mg/L) in drinking water. Fortress MC Systems are the Only EPA- Registered ultra low dose mussel control system.
Fortress MC Systems' raw water protection process is simple, straight-forward and does not involved handling, storing or mixing any liquid chemicals. The only utilities required are already abundantly available; water and electricity. Fortress MC Systems are compact and modular, allowing various treatment capacities, from 100GPM to over 100MGD on a single train.
