Potable Quality Water
For a growing community
Preserve existing aquifer
Financially attractive new water
EWM P1, which utilizes EWM's process technology, is located next to El Paso Water Utilities’ Kay Baily Hutchison (KBH) Water Treatment Plant. It is designed to process waste brine concentrate currently being disposed from the KBH plant through deep well injection approximately 20 miles from the site. In addition, the plant will process raw brackish well water to augment the total water supply for the city.
As well as providing potable quality water to the city of El Paso, this facility will also create high-quality gypsum for local agriculture. Since this gypsum is produced as a precipitate from the water, it is totally water soluble. Water soluble gypsum is more efficient as a fertilizer because it can be added directly into watering streams leading to higher adsorption by crops. EWM P1 also creates all of the needed chemicals for corrosion control so returned water to the city is non-corrosive.
