One System, Many Solutions: Upgrading With MBRSource: Ovivo
Following a pre‐selection (and pre‐purchase) process, an Ovivo MBR System was selected to upgrade/expand an old SBR‐based treatment system. The existing plant remained in service throughout construction that lasted roughly 22 months. The project was funded through a variety of sources including ARRA (Green Project Reserve) and SRF loans. Energy efficient design features allowed the City access to the Green funding and the elimination of equalization reduced the overall project cost by $1.8M. Currently, plant effluent (Class A) is recycled and used onsite. In the future, treated effluent will be reused for irrigation and maintenance purposes.
