The federal initiative is led by JXN Water Inc.

De Nora will provide two ClorTec 2400-C systems, with each rack comprised of four 600 PPD (pounds per day) electrolytic cells. The ClorTec systems will be constructed at De Nora’s nearby Sugar Land, Texas facility.

Jacobs Engineering is JXN Water’s contract operator and program manager, and HDR is the design engineer of record on the OB Curtis WTP drinking water improvements. Construction services are being provided by Wharton-Smith.

“Time is critical when addressing water improvements,” said engineer Drew Zirkle, senior project manager at HDR. “We worked collaboratively with JXN Water and Jacobs to select De Nora. De Nora has a global footprint and strong track record in the United States. We believe this technology and our design efforts will help the Jackson community’s water system.”
