A project funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) will provide the resources that will help Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) triple the lab’s capacity to save water.
The upgrade of LANL’s Sanitary Effluent Reclamation Facility (SERF), a $16.1 million project, meets a Department of Energy and NNSA requirement for recycling water and reducing the consumption of potable water use. The 4,350-square-foot facility treats effluent water from LANL’s sanitary sewer system and meets a standard equivalent to drinking water which is ultimately recycled for industrial reuse. Using treated sanitary effluent in the cooling towers reduces LANL’s use of potable water, derived from the regional aquifer, for such purposes.
“The upgrade of the SERF will allow LANL to save critical taxpayer dollars,” said Don Cook, NNSA’s Deputy Administrator for Defense Programs. “The is a clear example of how NNSA is improving the way we do business and ensuring that NNSA is committed to improving the infrastructure needed to meet the national nuclear security mission of protecting our country.”
