Fort Wayne's new water plant dedicated

FORT WAYNE — Fort Wayne’s new $22 million ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection system, dedicated Thursday, has been recognized by Water and Waste Digest magazine, which praised the city’s ongoing efforts to supply nearly 300,000 residents with clean drinking water each day. The (UV) system will be used to treat the 11 billion gallons of drinking water produced at the plant each year.

For decades, Fort Wayne City Utilities safely treated the community’s drinking water with chlorine dioxide as its primary disinfectant. But due to the 1993 cryptosporidium outbreak in Milwaukee that left nearly 70 dead and several hundred ill, communities across the country, including Fort Wayne, were mandated by the EPA to implement a newer disinfection system that would destroy cryptosporidium at a higher level.
