Water treatment technologies and practices continue to evolve as new applications are proven and become more cost-effective to implement. Knowing which technology is right for one system or what plant modifications will help meet treatment requirements is only learned through hands-on experience. We have designed numerous new or upgraded drinking water treatment facilities throughout the U.S., including conventional treatment, enhanced conventional treatment, membrane systems, high-rate direct filtration systems, and ozone and ultraviolet disinfection systems. Before design begins, our team of specialists work with our clients to develop a comprehensive water treatment plan that establishes the treatment strategies needed to meet both short and long-term water quality goals. A practical operations plan is also helpful for maximizing production capabilities of the existing and new treatment facilities, minimizing operational difficulties and improving the reliability of the treatment system.
