Question Of The Week: Cooling Tower Blowdown Water Reuse?
Posted by Heidi Schwartz
This week’s question comes from the Facilities Management Group on LinkedIn.
Does anyone out there have firsthand experience with the following request on a smaller scale..say a 300 ton tower??
The plant wants to reclaim cooling tower blowdown water and use it for the purposes of landscape irrigation. This action benefits the plant in two ways; first, the daily sanitary sewer outflow will be significantly reduced and second, the city water previously used for landscape irrigation will be conserved.
To accomplish this objective, a recovery system has been engineered, designed, and installed to capture the cooling tower blowdown and transfer this water to the inlet of the present landscape irrigation system or to a traveling sprinkler irrigation system. Any additional feedback would be greatly appreciated.
