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.
