JACKSONVILLE, FL, March 9, 2007 -- Applied Technology & Management, Inc. (ATM) was selected by the City of LaBelle, FL, for the planning, design, permitting, and construction management of their new 4.0 million gallon per day (mgd), expandable to 10 mgd, reverse osmosis water treatment plant (WTP). This regionally significant project -- the city's largest capital project to date -- ensures sufficient high quality drinking water in this fast-growing area of Florida.
The project team will design a new source water well field, treatment facility, water storage facilities, distribution system improvements, and a deep well injection system (for disposal of concentrate from the treatment process). The facility is expected to be online in early 2010 and will replace their existing lime-softening water treatment plant, which was built in the early 1970s.
ATM has worked with the City of LaBelle for the past 12 years providing planning, permitting, design, and construction services for the City's utility system.
"Having worked with LaBelle for over a decade, we recognize the significance and importance of this project to the City and its future," says ATM Project Manager Grant Misterly, P.E. "With the ATM Project Team's expertise and familiarity with the City's needs and goals, we will not only deliver a high quality and successful project, but will also help guide the City through this large capital undertaking."
