Project Details

Complete construction of a new 0.999-mgd water treatment facility featuring the first-ever municipal application of the Orica MICo (MIEX® Co-removal) ion exchange process, and was designed, permitted and constructed to remove both organics and hardness with cationic and anionic resins in a common reactor vessel. The new process brings the city into compliance with state regulations regarding total trihalomethane (TTHM) maximum contaminant levels (MCL), produces softer water that prolongs appliance and plumbing fixture life, addresses customer water-quality concerns, maximizes the amount of source water for potable use, and is projected to meet the finished water demands of the city through 2030. The Ion Exchange Water Treatment Plant was named by the Florida Chapter of APWA as the 2016 Project of the Year in the environmental projects under $5 million category.
