NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The company NO-DES (Neutral Output-Discharge Elimination System) has introduced technology for flushing system pipelines and keeping the water contained within the system, resulting in no loss of potable water, and potentially saving over a million gallons of water annually. The system works by connecting the truck or trailer mounted filter system from hydrant to hydrant. The operator can then close valves as necessary to allow for unidirectional flushing of the main pipe line. The water is filtered through bag filters and re-chlorinated before being pumped back into the system through another hydrant. The implementation of the NO-DES flushing system will enhance the District's water conservation efforts by millions of gallons per year, thereby improving its ability to provide a safe, reliable, and sustainable water supplyto its customers.
