de-watering ponds servicesWe recently employed a comprehensive mobile water treatment process in a remote location to de-water a pond holding saline water produced during gas production. The water was passed through disc filters, microfilters and reverse osmosis. The RO permeate was used for road dust suppression and the RO reject was further concentrated with BeneTerra’s EvC™.
