Calgon Carbon to Clean up Pasadena Groundwater

Calgon Carbon Corporation on Jan. 20  announced that it has been awarded a three-year service contract from the city of Pasadena, Calif., for a treatment system to remove perchlorate and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from groundwater in the Monk Hill Basin, a sub-area of the Raymond Basin aquifer.

Under terms of the contract, which can be extended beyond three years, the company will provide and install the treatment system, along with granular activated carbon and ion exchange media. The value of the contract is approximately $10 million.

The treatment system will restore and maximize the use of the city of Pasadena's local groundwater resources. The treatment system will meet the requirements established by the California Department of Public Health for drinking water.

This is the second contract awarded to the company in the Raymond Basin for removal of perchlorate and VOCs. A Calgon Carbon system has been treating groundwater at a Lincoln Avenue Water company site for over 18 months.
