The fast-track design-build project includes the entire treatment plant as well as the construction of the building.
The Veolia Water treatment plant will provide precipitation, decantation, filtration and pH correction. The plant incorporates metals precipitation using ACTIFLO TURBO, a high-rate, small footprint clarification process. After clarification, the water undergoes sand filtration to remove any remaining solids, followed by pH correction.
