EPIPHANY ALLEGHENY ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS

PITTSBURGH, Pa (Feb. 23) – Epiphany Water Solutions is committed to providing factual and complete answers to the questions people in the Coudersport area have about its waste water treatment plant to be co-located at the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority’s facility in Eulalia Township. The company issued this statement today regarding the technology utilized to treat water transported to the facility:

Q. How exactly does Epiphany treat the waste water?

A. Waste water will be treated using a two-step process that first removes all metals through chemical precipitation, followed by a distillation process that removes all of the salt in the water. The metals (about 2-3% of the total), including a minute trace of radiological material, will be transported to a permitted landfill, while the salt (15-20%) will meet quality standards for beneficial use. Clean, potable water (~80%) is the third byproduct of the treatment process.

Q. Is Epiphany’s technology reliable?

A. Yes. Chemical precipitation technologies have been used reliably for decades, and the distillation process has been understood for centuries. In fact, distillation is the only process that is irrefutably proven to be 100% effective at removing salts from this type of waste water.

Q. Is there a chance that Epiphany’s technology could fail and accidentally discharge untreated water?

A. No. The design and construction of Epiphany’s facility includes multiple redundancies and fail-safe systems that are automatically employed in the highly unlikely event of any type of operational or equipment problem.

Q. How long has Epiphany been doing this?

A. Epiphany began intense research and development of high-efficiency, low-cost, seawater desalination technologies in 2009. Since that time, the company has raised the bar to meet the task of low-cost waste water desalination.

#1. Is Epiphany's technology reliable?
Notice how Epiphany response is always, we have 100% reliability in desalinization of seawater. Well, we are not talking about seawater here in Coudersport, we are discussing incredibly toxic waster water from Fracking.
#2. Is there any chance that Epiphany's technology can fail?
Epiphany's response "NO". Well Epiphany, anything and everything has the potential to fail at some point. The fact that your technology has never been tested at this capacity, really lends itself to unpredictable problems.
#3. How long has Epiphany been doing this?
Epiphany's response: we have been desalinating seawater for 9 years. Again! We are not talking about seawater here. We are talking about toxic proprietary & known chemicals & radiation.
#4. If Epiphany's claims are to be believed, then why are there not other sites that have used Epiphany's miraculous technology at 42,000 or more gallons a day backing them and helping to prove these claims.

yeah...clean water. Why don't you go down and stand next to the allegheny about 100 yards downstream from the sewer plant. Hypocrites....

Go President Trump, and go Epiphany! The American spirit is alive again, thanks to President Trump! Defeat these loser Fake News scientists! Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, who knows what great things this company can do for the area.

Q. How exactly does Epiphany treat the waste water?
A. Epiphany has a small scale unit that can be used on well pads and the process includes “evaporation.” "IF" permitted this facility would be the first of its kind treating waste from unconventional wells at this scale according to Jere Northridge of the North Central Regional office of the DEP and his number is 814-342-8105.

Q. Is Epiphany’s technology reliable?

A. Nobody can answer that it hasn’t been built yet.

Q. Is there a chance that Epiphany’s technology could fail and accidentally discharge untreated water?

A. Heck no! There will never be an equipment failure. Epiphany will only hire super humans that are incapable of normal human error. And the floodplain that was underwater for 10 days in January, where the facility will be constructed , will never ever flood again because, well, just because.

Q. How long has Epiphany been doing this?

A. Epiphany has not done this yet.

“Epiphany began intense research and development of high-efficiency, low-cost, seawater desalination technologies in 2009. Since that time, the company has raised the bar to meet the task of low-cost waste water desalination. “

Speaking of cost, this experiment has cost the sewage customers over 20K so far in engineering and permits. And that's just the beginning! CAMA agreed to cover all the site prep costs too! And during those years of dedication Epiphany seems to have taken a little time off to design a cell phone charger to charge cell phones with the heat from a cup of coffee! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/epiphanylabs/epiphany-one-puck/comments
That didn't go well.

Pittsburgh draws 70 million gallons of drinking water from the Allegheny daily. One catastrophe could end that.

In addition to the unacceptable health, safety and environmental risks associated with this insane experiment. As a sewage customer I’m not happy with the board’s reckless use of sewage authority funds. It hard for me to wrap my brain around the fact the board agreed to cover all the engineering, permits and site prep costs without having a reimbursement agreement in place in the event the facility permits are denied.

Diane It is great to see someone who points out the facts and you did a good job of it. As for some of the other poster here well let just say they need to wakeup and learn to look at facts instead of buying the BS that a certain person in DC is spreading.

I'll believe their lies when the owner or CAMA board moves
their families next door.

Does everyone notice the silence from the three stooges at 1 n main st?

Fake News. All of it. Coudersport strongly supports the Trump energy agenda, and we strongly support fracking. Thank you Epiphany for wanting to Make America Great Again. This is Republican country, don't forget! We make our own energy, we don't need to buy it!

8:24:00 AM This isn’t anti Trump’s energy agenda, it’s about passing frack waste through the sewage plant for discharge into the Allegheny.
