H2O Innovation announces plans to create beer from purified recycled water
by CM Staff
The recycled water comes from the LVMWD’s water reuse demonstration facility in California, the Pure Water Project Las Virgenes – Triunfo.
QUEBEC CITY — H2O Innovation Inc. says they will sponsor a beer developed in collaboration with Fox City Brewing made with purified recycled water from Las Virgenes Municipal Water District (LVMWD). Attendees of the 2023 WateReuse Symposium will be offered the opportunity to taste the beer, which is called Revival Lager. The event will be held in Atlanta, GA, from March 5th through the 8th, 2023.
On Sunday, March 5, 2023, the WateReuse Association will host a Welcome Reception for hundreds of water professionals, during which attendees can taste the eco-friendly beer. This beer, which was brewed in Forsyth, is a first for the State of Georgia, which, like several other States, recycles many things, but very little water. The beer’s name signifies that the water used as its main ingredient was granted a second life, and the project is intended to stress the importance of sustainability in the way we use, and reuse, one of the world’s most precious resource: water.
The recycled water comes from the LVMWD’s water reuse demonstration facility in California, the Pure Water Project Las Virgenes – Triunfo, where H2O Innovation supplied the ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) treatment systems in 2020. This project is part of a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) between LVMWD and the Triunfo Water and Sanitation District. The RO and UF systems used to treat the water in such an advanced purification facility meet quality standards and produce a pure water.
Instead of continuing to treat water from the JPA’s Tapia Water Reclamation Facility as a waste product, the JPA will beneficially reuse it as a local sourced drinking water supply. Nearly 20% of the regions water needs will be met because of this project. Closing the sustainability loop is part of the collective strategy and principle to find solutions that meet the intersection between human progression and environmental integrity. “The Pure Water Project Las Virgenes – Triunfo is the future of water for our region, which has solely relied upon a single source of water – the California State Water Project – to quench the thirst of our communities, stated Dave Pedersen, General Manager and Administering Agent of JPA. With climate change and erratic weather patterns becoming the new normal, we formed a stakeholder driven partnership with community partners to find a solution that benefits the entire region, this project does just that.”
