Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Global Water Group, Inc., Dallas-based maker of advanced water processing systems, has been selected to provide stand-by emergency water purification systems to four Veterans Affairs medical centers in the states of Missouri, South Carolina, and Washington.
These medical centers are the first VA hospitals to acquire Global Water’s emergency systems, which have had a strong track record with the US Special Forces, disaster relief agencies, and theme parks, such as Disneyland (Anaheim, CA), according to Alan Weiss, president/CEO, Global Water Group, Inc.
“We hope these emergency water systems will never be needed,” Weiss said, “but if a disaster or other emergency strikes one of these VA hospitals, the patients and staff will be assured of having an adequate supply of highly purified potable water.”
All four hospitals selected variations of Global Water’s LS3-M15000 series, capacity 21,500 gallons per day (gpd). The system can take water from any fresh water source, e.g. ponds, contaminated municipal sources, and purify it to a higher degree than ordinary tap water, Weiss said.
The VA hospitals chose various configurations including movable units that can be set up on a flatbed truck or on the ground; mobile trailer units suitable for moderate climates, and an enclosed trailer unit that includes a heater for cold weather. The units can be powered by diesel generators or locally available power sources (the trailer systems come with generators for back-up or primary use).
The VA hospitals that selected the five Global Water emergency units are:
- VA Puget Sound (Seattle and Tacoma, WA);
- John J. Pershing VA Medical Center, Poplar Bluff, MO, and
- Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center, Columbia, SC (two units)
