AQWA Inc., (Wilson, NC), the AdvanTex® dealer in the Carolinas, is pleased to announce the addition of Virginia into its market territory.
Orenco Systems (Sutherlin, OR), the manufacturer of AdvanTex Wastewater Treatment Systems, has authorized AQWA Inc. to bring its unmatched sales and service team to engineers, developers, commercial facility owners, utilities, and municipalities throughout the Commonwealth.
The AdvanTex line has grown in recent years to include a larger, modular AX-Max™ system, which allows for phased installation for flows from 5,000 GPD up to 100,000 GPD or more. Clean effluent from these units is safely discharged to the environment through drip or spray irrigation, traditional drainfields, or direct NPDES discharge. “The AdvanTex Treatment System is the closest thing to a bullet-proof wastewater treatment system out there. Now, it’s our job to show everyone what it can do,” says Steve Barry, AQWA’s President.
He continues: “With the focus on nutrient limitations in the Chesapeake Bay and Smith Mountain Lake regions, growth pressures in Northern Virginia, as well as environmentally sensitive trout streams in the Blue Ridge, we expect the AX-Max to be very well received in Virginia.”
Since Orenco introduced this product for larger flows, AQWA has made significant inroads in the Carolinas, including groundbreaking systems installed in several new decentralized subdivisions on Lake Norman NC, in a nuclear power plant, and in state parks, RV parks, and several schools.
“Our new mission is to rid the world of traditional aeration ‘package plants’. They are simply the wrong technology for flows less than 100,000 gallons per day,” according to Barry. “If we don’t get rid of those tired old ‘package plants’ and replace them more stable and scalable technologies like the AX-Max, the environment will continue to suffer and owners will continue to pay too much. We’re going to keep doing everything we can to leave cleaner lakes and rivers to our kids and grandkids, and this another step along that path.”
Since 2002, AQWA, a family-owned business, has relentlessly worked to be The Clear Leader™ in wastewater treatment equipment sales and service in the Carolinas. “We’ve been blessed in so many ways. We have a great partner in Orenco, as well as diligent employees with high integrity. Their hard work has earned the respect of regulators, engineers, installers, soil scientists, and property owners alike.” Barry says.
