Global Treatment Solutions became involved with the Flint Water Crisis in February of 2016. Our dedicated team was able to utilize the same technology and treatment solutions used to address large scale environmental contamination to develop a residential sized filtration system.
In February of 2016, Global began working with UA Local 370 Plumbers and Pipe Fitters to start installing systems on a trial basis in homes throughout Flint. Working with the union also allowed Global to gain a more thorough understanding of the true condition of Flint’s water system and infrastructure which improved the efficiency of the final treatment method.
Global Treatment Solutions’ complete residential systems are currently operating in several homes across Flint. Test results showed lead levels being reduced to non-detect and a dramatic decrease in the presence of volatile organic compounds.
Continued, routine testing is being done to ensure maximum performance.
Global’s filtration system is a multi-phase treatment train that includes point of entry and point of use systems. This system allows Flint residents to eliminate their dependence on bottled water while lead service lines are replaced throughout the city.
For pricing and installation questions, please call 800.423.2043.
