GE to Upgrade Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant
BRADENTON – GE Water & Process Technologies has announced that it will supply its advanced water treatment equipment for an upgrade of the Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant.
GE will provide the Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant with its ZeeWeed 1000 ultrafiltration membranes for the surface water trains, which will produce water quality that meets stringent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency drinking water standards. The upgrade will enable Manatee County to continue to meet the water needs of its citizens without increasing the footprint of the plant.
Manatee County decided to upgrade the plant, as its multimedia filters in the surface water treatment trains were approaching the end of their useful life. The county selected ultrafiltration technology to accomplish a retrofit within the footprint of its existing media filters.
