The tour begins at Gwinnett County Shoal Creek Filter Plant's (SCFP) ozone disinfection system, sized for 1-log removal credit of Cryptosporidium using three 2400 lbs/day ozone generators, a sidestream injection downflow tube ozone dissolution system, and two 1 million-gallon serpentine baffled contactors. SCFP also houses two pilot plants used to conduct applied research and to optimize treatment processes. The tour then travels to F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Center, one of the largest ozone and membrane wastewater treatment facilities in the world, with the ability to process up to 60 million gallons of wastewater per day. The facility includes traditional wastewater treatment processes followed by chemical clarifiers, ultrafiltration membranes, pre-ozone, biologically active carbon filters, and final ozone to produce very high-quality reclaimed water that is returned to Lake Lanier, the water supply for Gwinnett County and many other Atlanta metropolitan communities.
