Tesla Treatment Facility located in Stanislaus County, the project combines ultraviolet (UV) water treatment with a chemical water treatment. “Our goal for this project was to be a model for sustainable infrastructure while reflecting the environmental stewardship of our agency and city,” said Bijan Ahmadzadeh, SFPUC regional construction manager. Jifco provided the treated UV piping within the UV Building with 12 each 48 inch diameter 51 mgd Calgon Reactors; and fed by 144 inch diameter site piping and valves.
