From our Georgia home base, we have easy access to all of the United States, which is where most of our projects have been completed. But we are also no strangers to our neighbors to the north. Here are a few highlights from some of AdEdge’s projects in Canada: 

  • In Alberta’s Hamlet of Little Smoky community, an AdEdge multistage treatment solution tackles high concentrations of arsenic, iron and manganese, aluminum, total dissolved solids, total suspended solids, total organic carbon and turbidity at a truck fill station designed as a resource for residents during times of water scarcity. AdEdge designed a system with ultraviolet disinfection, reverse osmosis, an ion-exchange system, an oxidation/filtration system, and pre- and post-chlorination — all housed inside a container. The system, which started in December 2013, runs for about 16 hours a day and has a projected consumption of 13,200 gpd. Treated water is stored below the system in a 100-cubic-meter storage tank.
  • A river mine site in Yukon enlisted AdEdge to treat the arsenic in its tailing pond’s discharge water because the site’s existing treatment plant was inoperable. The arsenic levels of 54 ppb exceeded the Canadian Metal Mining Effluent Regulations standard of 50 ppb. An AdEdge WaterPOD containerized building houses a skid-mounted coagulation/filtration packaged unit, which has reduced the arsenic levels to well below the standard since it was started up in June 2012.
  • About 150 students and staff at Rawdon Elementary School in Nova Scotia needed a treatment solution for the elevated arsenic levels in the school’s water. Atlantic Purification Systems contacted AdEdge to design, manufacture and start up a system to bring the arsenic levels to a safe level that complied with the Canadian Maximum Acceptable Concentration (MAC) of 10 ppb. Integrated with the school’s existing water softener system, the 10 gpm system includes two composite vessels with top-mounted automatic flow controls. Using AdEdge’s E33 granular ferric oxide media, the system has successfully and consistently reduced the school’s arsenic levels to below the MAC since September 2007.
