Groundwater treatment update presentation - City of Scottsdale

Just received the following from Vicki Rosen, the EPA's Community Involvement Coordinator for the North Indian Bend Wash (NIBW) Superfund site. It concerns the Central Groundwater Treatment Facility (CGTF) operated by the City of Scottsdale (in other words - *not* the facility that has had all the issues recently, the one operated by Arizona American Water) -


Here's an invitation from the City of Scottsdale
regarding the Central
Groundwater Treatment Facility.  Please feel free to contact Suzanne 
Grendahl directly with any questions.


The City of Scottsdale would like to invite you to an
informal presentation and discussion of the control systems in place at 
the CGTF.  Since the incident in January at the MRTF, we have been 
questioned about whether this could happen at the CGTF.  We hope 
to explain the redundant systems and alarms that are in place at the 
CGTF to address any concerns.  In addition, the City will give 
a brief description of some additional treatment (TDS reduction) 
that will be added to the CGTF over the next two years, unrelated 

to the remedy. The presentation will be held Thursday, March 13, 2008

at 9:30 a.m. at the City of Scottsdale Water Campus (8787 E. Hualapai Drive).

We look forward to seeing you.

Suzanne Grendahl, Water Quality Director
City of Scottsdale

Any questions should be directed to Ms. Grendahl at the above address or to
Vicki at Rosen.Vicki[at]

Due to its instant availability and quality, Groundwater has become the prime source of drinking water among common people. Groundwater gets contaminated due to many reasons so that Groundwater Treatment can not be avoided anyhow!
