Global ecology, resource preservation, and green technologies have become a focal point of manufacturing facilities, government agencies, and new technology in every industry over the past decade.  Water conservation is a critical approach to environmental and resource conservation.  A unique approach is being used to address concerns of water reuse at a facility with zero permissible discharge and plant wastewater effluent for cooling tower make-up.  A creative combination of electrochemical water treatment and chemicals was employed.  This paper will discuss the approach and results used in this cooling tower application.
