Description

The project consists of both new construction and rehab work of the existing plant. Construction includes a new aeration basin connected to an existing basin, a new pretreatment structure, a Membrane Bioreactor (“MBR”) structure and new operations building and a new storm water detention pond. The MBR replaced filtration typically performed by clarifiers and filters. This is a newer application of membrane technology, and is one of the first installed in Florida. The MBR is provided by GE – Zenon.
