As part of a 7-year, $800M capital improvement program (CIP) through 2029 to continue providing safe and reliable water supplies to a growing four-county region in southwest Florida, the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority is undertaking several regional potable transmission main projects, the Peace River Regional Reservoir No. 3 Project, and expanding the Peace River Water Treatment Facility (PRF), among other projects.

To evaluate the most appropriate treatment solution to expand the 51 million gallon per day PRF, a technology pilot system was installed and operated under the technical direction of Brown and Caldwell, the Authority’s owner advisor for the CIP. Brown and Caldwell documented treatment effectiveness for four unique technologies in various combinations for an expanded facility.

Watch this video to learn more about the technologies evaluated and how they will inform the preferred design approach for the PRF.
