Brown and Caldwell identified hidden capacity to allow cost-effective plant expansion from 40 to 60 mgd for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina’s conventional ozone water treatment plant. An incremental solution to satisfy summer peak capacity needs was implemented in one year and will allow the plant to operate at 45 mgd. With a construction cost of slightly more than $1 million, the additional 5 mgd of capacity is achieved at a cost of only 20 cents per gallon.
