    The Joint Water Purification Plant (JWPP) was developed through a cooperative venture between the Cottonwood Water and Sanitation District and the Arapahoe County Water and Wastewater Authority. The new JWPP is capable of processing up to 12 million gallons of water per day for use by 12,000 residents and 30,000 commercial employees. The plant utilizes high-quality water from the Cherry Creek Alluvial Aquifer−a renewable water source−instead of relying on finite supplies from deep groundwater sources. The RMH Group’s services included design for a heat pipe energy recovery unit for the plant’s hazardous chemical storage rooms, which is anticipated to save the client approximately $5,500 per year. A laboratory exhaust fan was designed to support a laboratory fume hood used to test the water during various stages of the purification process. RMH also designed a make-up air system for the plant’s advanced oxidation equipment which transfers volatile components in the water to an air stream that is then exhausted to atmosphere. Outside air is provided to the main plant area by three custom heating and ventilating air handling units utilizing indirect gas-fired heat.
