Water-Energy Nexus:  SPIE is partnering with AWWEE for a tour of the Advanced Water Purification Center in San Jose from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Friday October 11, 2019.

The 8 million gallon per day (mgd) Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC) is the first of its kind in northern California. This state-of-the-art facility was designed to expand nonpotable water supplies for irrigation and industrial uses, and to reduce the region’s dependency on imported water. At the SVAWPC, treated wastewater is further cleaned through a multi-barrier treatment process that includes

  • micro filtration,
  • reverse osmosis filtration, and
  • ultraviolet (UV) disinfection.

The facility is designed to focused on technology to treat the water to California’s most stringent unrestricted water reuse standards.
