Native American Drinking Water Plant In Arizona Using GE’s ZeeWeed* Technology Is Honored With Water Project Of The Year Award

Stocks in this article: GE

The Ak-Chin Indian Community’s surface water treatment plant, featuring GE’s (NYSE: GE) ZeeWeed* 500 advanced treatment technology, was recently honored with the 2013 Water Project of the Year Award from the AZ Water Association. The new plant, commissioned in 2012, has a capacity of 2.25 million gallons per day and provides drinking water to community members and Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino. It also provides sufficient capacity to meet the needs of existing commercial operations as well as future expansions.

It is the first surface water treatment plant for the Ak-Chin Indian Community, located in the Santa Cruz Valley of Southern Arizona, 50 miles south of Phoenix in the northwestern part of Pinal County. GE also provided the technology for the Ak-Chin Indian Community’s nearby membrane bioreactor water reclamation facility, which provides Arizona Class A+ effluent for water reuse and recharge, and also won an international and multiple state awards. Carollo Engineers in Phoenix is responsible for the award-winning design of both plants.

The Ak-Chin Indian Community’s surface water treatment plant takes advantage of its surface water allotment of Colorado River Water supplied via the Maricopa-Stanfield canal system and the Central Arizona Project canal, which gives it a secure source of water, allowing for the population to properly plan for future growth and expansion.

This project represents the latest successful partnering effort between GE and Carollo Engineers in Arizona.

“Carollo trusted GE’s advanced water treatment equipment to provide a reliable, safe and secure drinking water supply that met the Ak-Chin Indian Community’s current needs and provided critical flexibility to accommodate variable flow and water quality conditions in the future. The GE design team integrated seamlessly with our staff, promoting an expedited, efficient and cost-effective design. The project was presented with the 2013 AZ Water Association Water Treatment Plant of the Year Award based on its innovation and positive impact on the community,” said Dave Sobeck, senior vice president, Carollo Engineers, Inc.
