New Technology to Remove Nitrates from Water Highlighted in Feb. 20 Tech Talk

Join us for our February Tech Talk where Tailwater Systems will discuss how their high-performance bioreactors can help remove nitrates and other contaminants from field drainage and drinking water wells. Tailwater Systems, one of 53 startups working out of Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, designs, builds and operates these compact systems that can be placed anywhere—in a field, next to a greenhouse or near a lift station.

During the Tech Talk, Tailwater Systems Founder John Skardon will discuss how the start-up company can build a bioreactor on a grower’s site in four to eight hours. He will also speak about his recently completed project, which can process five gallons per minute and fits into a 10 x 10 square foot area. Systems range from five to 200 gallons per minute. Assembly and startup time can vary depending on the local site requirements.

For more information about Tailwater Systems, read the “Nitrate Remediation…in Your Backyard” story in WG&S Magazine and join us for the Tech Talk on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 3pm PST.
