Biwater have been awarded a contract to design, supply and supervise the installation and commissioning of both ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) systems for the Groundwater Reliability Improvement Program (GRIP) advanced water treatment facility being constructed in Pico Rivera, Southern California.
The new 14.8 million US gallon per day (56 million liter per day) plant will support the Water Replenishment District (WRD) of Southern California in its aim to be 100 percent independent from imported water. Site work is underway following the recent ground breaking ceremony to meet a completion date of July 2018.
“Biwater is on track to supply state-of-the-art UF and RO systems by late 2017 for the new GRIP advanced water treatment plant. The membrane systems are two of the three key process technologies essential to the indirect potable reuse solution. Biwater’s membrane technologies will help replenish groundwater supplies to ensure local aquifers are sustainable and continue to be a vital and growing contributor to the region’s water demands,” said Jorg Menningmann, President of Biwater’s Membrane Treatment and Desalination Sector (Biwater Inc.).
