Tucson Water's Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) Water Treatment Facility uses state-of-the-art technology to effectively remove 1,4-dioxane from water. The facility operates in conjunction with the adjacent Tucson Airport Remediation Project (TARP) facility to produce up to 7 million gallons of purified water a day.
Construction of the Advanced Oxidation Process Water Treatment Facility began in July 2012 and was completed in January 2014. The facility was awarded the 2015 Grand Prize in Design from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists (AAEES). More information is available below:
