Abstract: Vortex Corporation, in partnership with the Water Quality Center and Prof Charles Gerba at the University of Arizona, proposes to address HSARPAs need for an effective replacement for chlorine in municipal water treatment. The proposed water disinfection system combines the synergistic effect of UV, Ozone and silver ions to produce drinking water to meet EPA requirements. In the Phase I program, a laboratory prototype device has been constructed and has been shown to meet or exceed EPA requirements for Primary and Secondary disinfection and Disinfection-by-product formation. In the Phase II, a larger scale, prototype system will be designed, built and tested on a group of homes at the Water Village at the University of Arizona. The Water Village, is an isolated group of homes with its own water treatment and water distribution system, Here, the prototype will be tested for its compliance with all EPA requirements; including Primary and Secondary Disinfection and Disinfection-by-Product Formation.
