Food Safety Water Treatment in California: Challenges and Benefits
Food and agricultural water rank among the most challenging types of waste to manage, both from an environmental and cost containment standpoint. The sheer volume and number of impurities present in agricultural and food processing water — including both organic and inorganic waste as well high potential for the presence of pathogens — can easily damage natural ecosystems and water treatment infrastructure alike.
To further complicate matters, each type of food processing water has its unique composition and must be treated accordingly. These special factors must be taken into consideration along with California’s strict water management laws and federal guidelines such as National Pollutant Elimination System (NPDES) permitting requirements. Adjusting for seasonal harvest and/or processing multiple types of products can introduce yet another level of cost and complexity to food wastewater treatment.
Effective water treatment for the food industry in California accomplishes the following benefits:
- Reduces water waste
- Maintains safe food supply
- Protects valuable equipment
- Safeguards natural ecosystems and water supply
- Mitigates pathogen risk to protect employee and public health
- Ensures compliance with environmental and food safety regulations
- Reduces cost of production and operation
Meras offers a full range of services and solutions to provide these benefits and more.
