Check out the latest information on the library’s green improvements from Richard, the Executive Director:
As our new chillers are being craned down the back stairs of the library, I sat down with the contractor and our construction management team and we talked about water treatment of the cooling tower water that will be pumped through those new chillers. We could go with a conventional chemical system that will eliminate the organic and biological impurities that find their way into system or we could look to alternative methods. The decision was finally made to explore a new system that doesn’t rely on environmentally harsh chemicals, it works by establishing a electric field to neutralize suspended particles like bacteria and other mineral and/or bio-threatening impurities. The library saves in the long run on not having to purchase harmful chemicals and mother earth wins from not having to be subjected to them.
