New Water Filtration Plant to be Built in Mansfield

Mansfield University News

MANSFIELD, PA— Mansfield University will begin construction of a new water filtration plant in the spring of 2011. The new $6 million facility will replace the current plant, which has been online since 1937.

Approved by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services (DGS), the new facility will take 15 months to construct and will meet established Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.

The new plant will filter water with microfiltration. The microfiltration system will achieve six-log removal of protozones such as giardia and cryptosporidium and filtrate turbidity to less than 0.1 nephelometric turbidity units (NTU), which will require less use of chemicals to control disinfection.
