TIGG Responds to Emergency Caused by Tennessee Flooding!

Tennessee Emergency Response

During the Spring 2011 flooding in Tennessee there was concern that the drinking water plant would be flooded cutting off supply to the community, including the correctional facility. Evacuating residents is protocol in this situation, but what to do with the inmates? The prison has access to an irrigation well for water supply but the water does not meet drinking standards for iron and arsenic. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) got involved to find a system to make the irrigation water meet drinking water standards. TIGG Corporation received a call at 2:00 in the afternoon to design and deliver a system to treat the water. TIGG assembled a custom system specifically for the irrigation water which included a clarifier with metering pumps for chemical addition, two sand filters, arsenic removal media vessel, backwash tank mixers and pumps. The system shipped by noon the next day and was assembled by their emergency contractor immediately. By the third day, the system was producing drinking water that met standards.
