Case Study: Wellsboro, PA
Municipal Water Treatment – Drinking Water | North America: Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, USA
In November 2010, the Wellsboro Municipal Authority’s slow sand filtration drinking water plant began experiencing high turbidity and algae events due to elevated levels in their reservoir. As a result, their citizens received emergency notices to boil their water before use, which affected local residents and businesses alike.
With the installation of Pall Water's Aria FAST mobile water treatment system, in conjunction with the pre-existing slow sand filters (SSF), the Wellsboro Municipal Authority was able to meet the DEP drinking water requirements, lift their boil water order, and supply citizens and businesses with safe, high-quality drinking water.

The Wellsboro Municipal Authority required a fast solution to restore high-quality drinking water and lift a boil water advisory. Pall Water's Aria FLEX systems was chosen to solve this challenge, and as an additional safety measurement, added an alarm management system into the control system.
Upon successful completion of a pilot test, the Aria FAST mobile water treatment system was selected. The system's robust hollow-fiber membrane filtration modules provided high quality water, easily bringing the municipality into compliance, despite high turbidity events.
In addition to providing high quality water, the Authority was able to reduce the cleaning frequency of their conventional technology, significantly reducing maintenance costs. This solution minimizes capital expenditure and allows for future changes to the source water.
