The article reports on the efforts of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection specialist Berson to aid Carnation in the U.S. develop a way of dealing with wastewater through its InLine 7500+ UV systems. Officials in King County, Washington integrated a Membrane Bioreactor system with UV disinfection technology to ensure the treated water would be clean and safe. Carnation relied on septic tanks and drainage fields to satisfy its wastewater disposal needs. Carnation supervisor Dan Zimmer said the system has performed well and requires minimal maintenance.
