SURREY, UK, Feb. 11, 2014 -- The acceptance testing of a new 1.5-million-gallons-per-day (MGD) reverse osmosis (RO) system has been completed at the Springtree Water Treatment Plant located in Sunrise, Fla.

Provided by Biwater, a provider of various water services internationally, the now-operating facility is assisting the city in meeting its alternative water supply requirements. The UK-based company designed the two-stage system, which incorporates an interstage energy recovery system that includes a novel manipulated valve control system that it developed in conjunction with Fluid Equipment Development Company (FEDCO).

Approximately 1.5 MGD of potable water is produced with permeate water recoveries of up to 80 percent at the facility. Likewise, the feed water total dissolved solids (TDS) is recorded at roughly 3,000 mg/l, from a repurposed existing aquifer storage recovery (ASR) well. Biwater's installed treatment capacity in the city of Sunrise has climbed to 19.5 MGD/74,000 m3/day.

The project was performed directly under contract with the city of Sunrise, and Carollo Engineers served as the owner's engineer.
