CALIFORNIA, OH (FOX19) -
facility that provides most of the Cincinnati's tap water will soon unveil a $30 million upgrade to the water treatment process.
process uses state-of-art technology partially powered by the sun.
Bruce Whitteberry says inside the reactors are a series of 20,000 watt
"That UV light emitted by those light bulbs is what
actually sterilizes the micro organisms," he said.
says UV light is highly effective at removing the cyclosporidium bacteria, which
can cause diarrhea or even death. UV light is considered the best in water
purification, but it's only part of the process.
"We have treatment
systems to remove particles, along with those particles a lot of the disease
organisms are removed also. We have sand filtration. We have granular activated
carbon, which is a process that a lot of utilities don't have," said Whitteberry.
Chlorine is also added. He tells FOX19, "I think
this is probably safer than mountain spring water, and I drink the water
straight from my tap, and I encourage everyone else as well."
decision to add UV purification followed years of research, and it's relatively
inexpensive. Some of the power for the UV reactors comes from the sun.

us about $138,000 a year give or take. We hope even more," he said.
ultraviolet disinfection process costs each water customer about 30 cents per
month which is a bargain for arguably the cleanest water in the nation.
Cincinnati Water Works will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the UV Treatment Project on Thursday, October 3.
