What is Advanced Treatment?

Advanced Treatment is a multi-barrier process designed to eliminate contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products. This treatment is in addition to the traditional treatment processes which, by local, state and federal law, must already meet safe drinking water standards. Having several treatment processes addresses different contaminants and provide redundancies. Advanced treatment has proven to completely eliminate difficult to remove common compounds like sucralose, an artificial sweetener, ensuring similar, less prevalent and easier to remove compounds like amphetamines, opiods and other pharmaceuticals are also eliminated to below detectable levels. Advanced Treatment processes are being added to the Plum Creek Water Purification Facility in 2018-2020.
