Municipal Trihalomethane Removal Systems

Compliance takes time and resources. Deploying solutions in the water distribution system to reduce Disinfection Byproduct (DBP) levels is significantly faster and cheaper than making changes to the upstream processes in the water treatment plant. SUEZ installs and services TRS systems that provide THM removal from water in storage tanks and reservoirs to help operators achieve cost-effective regulatory compliance.
THM Water Treatment Solutions

Our TRS is a custom-designed, in-tank THM removal aeration system which optimizes trihalomethane removal in potable water tanks and reservoirs to assist with Stage 1 and Stage 2 DBP rule compliance for municipalities.


We combine multiple THM removal technologies - spray aeration, surface aeration, mixing, and ventilation - that we incorporate into our proprietary design and performance modeling software to create custom-designed, turnkey water storage tank aeration systems that are cost and energy-optimized.

Unlike other aeration systems, our TRS is customized for each tank and for each tank’s operating conditions to maximize effectiveness of the trihalomethane removal system while minimizing cost

Value of SUEZ TRS for THM Water Treatment

  • Ensures Stage 2 DBP regulatory compliance for Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's)
  • Optimizes THM removal results; the system is custom-engineered to be cost and energy-optimized for each tank
