Yorkshire Water Adds Ozone Water Treatment for Pesticide Removal

The Acomb Landing water treatment plant with an output capacity of 35ML/day drinking water processes raw water from the River Ouse as part of Yorkshire Water. The principal contractor, AECOM, is working to update the plant to remove micro pollutatns, primarily pesticides. They have decided to use ozone water treatment combined with activated carbon to remove these contaminants.

Ozone is effective in breaking down complex micro pollutants, such as pesticides, into safer compounds.
