As the original designer of the Plum Creek Water Purification Facility, our team planned for the addition of advanced treatment systems that will help the town meet its renewable source goals. Services included leading the piloting and design efforts, as well as collaborating closely with Garney Construction.
We provided design services for the addition of raw water blending, biological filtration, advanced oxidation, UV, granular activated carbon and residuals handling.
The role of the granular activated carbon system is to target emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products, in addition to providing a polishing step for total organic carbon. The system includes eight adsorption vessels, each filled with 40,000 pounds of granular activated carbon.
