We are proud to say, that we provided innovative solutions for Australia’s Mount Isa Water Board years ago, and they are still benefiting from today. Stephen Farrelly, Mount Isa Water Board Chief Executive, stated, “The new [Pall Water] plant not only delivers the highest assured quality of water ever supplied to Mount Isa, but achieves this at a fraction of the cost of [a] conventional plant, which would have been the recommended solution only a few years ago. We were glad to celebrate this achievement with the community.”

 

We work with our customers to provide the solutions they need, whether it be packaged plants, custom designs or mobile water units. Along with increasing efficiency and designing smart, user-friendly, systems. Jimmy Dean, Director of Water and Wastewater Quality for the City of Flowery Branch, was overly excited about the performance of their new system. Dean stated, “Pall’s Aria FLEX system helped us exceed phosphorus limits required for environmental discharge, and more than ten years later, the system is still performing at a level where we will not need to make any adjustments when our phosphorus limits drop even lower.”

Flowery Branch – Custom Water System Enables City to Meet Current and Future Water Quality Regulations

THE CHALLENGE: In 2002, Georgia’s City of Flowery Branch faced strict new requirements about discharging water back into the nearby Lake Lanier, which is a drinking water source for the community, compelling the City to find an alternative wastewater system. If unable to meet the new phosphorus limit, the city would have been banned from discharging any additional water into Lake Lanier, resulting in an immediate negative impact on the city. THE NEED: A solution that could meet strict regulations and water quality standards. THE SOLUTION: The implementation of Aria FLEX allowed Flowery Branch to meet the phosphorus limits reduction, enabling the plant to continue discharging wastewater into Lake Lanier. The plant also brought the water quality to reuse standards, and resulted in a reduced concentration of solids and other contaminants. After 10 years, the plant continues to run successfully. Despite new, stricter regulations, the wastewater plant will not need to make any modifications as it was designed to adapt with changing water requirements.
