Study approved for Michigan membrane water plant

Bay City in Michigan, USA, approved on 5 December 2011 the appointment of consultants Lockwood, Andrews & Newman Inc to evaluate construction of a new membrane plant at the site of the city's existing water treatment plant.

The study will also examine how equipment at the existing plant could be used in the new membrane plant and compile a project plan to allow application for a low-interest drinking-water revolving-fund loan.

The new plant, estimated to cost US$ 50 million, would be jointly owned and operated by Bay City and partners elsewhere in Bay County, and would purchase raw water from the Saginaw-Midland Municipal Water Supply Corp. It is expected to be completed in 2015.
