AOP Treatment Facility at Park Lane


The Bethpage Water District recently received crucial funding to support the District’s implementation of an Advanced Oxidation Processing (AOP) facility—one of the first of its kind in New York State. This AOP treatment system will treat unregulated contaminants like 1,4-Dioxane and contaminants stemming from the Northrop Gumman Plume.

Unlike traditional treatment methodologies like air stripping or granular activated carbon, which pass source water through solid fixtures tobreak up volatile organic contaminants, this AOP facility is an advanced treatment capability that uses 288 ultraviolet lightbulbs which react with a minimum level of common compounds used to treat groundwater.

The proactive implementation of this treatment facility is a part of our overall efforts to move #BethpageForward and further combat the contaminants left behind by Northrop Grumman and the United States Navy.
