RO desalination plant completed in Lake Worth

A 4.5 MGD (17,000 m³/d) reverse-osmosis drinking-water plant for Lake Worth, Florida, USA, began a month of testing in late July following completion earlier in the month.

The US$ 25 million brackish-water desalination plant treats water from deep wells into the Floridan aquifer and is currently producing about a third of its capacity. Expansion to 9 MGD (34,000 m³/d) is a future possibility.

Engineering for the City of Lake Worth was carried out by MockRoos, and the contractor was Reynolds Inc.
