With this speedy delivery, residents in Jacksonville will soon be benefiting from increased potable water production capacity, combined with specialized treatment and removal of silica and organics from the influent. The advanced system will treat unusable brackish well water and provide drinking water that meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards.
The custom RO trains and accompanying equipment for this project were designed and assembled in Biwater's factory in California, tested and then shipped semi-assembled to the site, which aided the overall speed of delivery and subsequent supervision of installation.
