System Processes Shower Water for Use in Toilet Flushing
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) wanted an environmentally friendly method for disposing of the greywater generated by the 336 shower buildings at their showcase camping and training facility, the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve (SBR) in West Virginia. The chosen technology would need to be energy-effi cient and take up as little space as possible.
An array of AdvanTex® AX20-RTs – 224 all together – was installed to process the greywater and treat it for reuse in toilets. Two AdvanTex AX-Max™ units provide additional treatment. This greywater system saves the camp up to 200,000 gallons (757 m3) per day during large events like the National Scout Jamboree, a monumental gathering every four years of tens of thousands of Boy Scouts, leaders, and support staff.
