City of Midland MBR Satellite Reclaimed Water Production Facility

CLIENT: City of Midland

eHT has evaluated the City of Midland’s Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) facility including evaluating headworks, biological treatment systems, MBR systems, disinfection, waste handling, reuse irrigation, odor control, electrical and control and SCADA systems. eHT performed a process performance and condition assessment and conducted plant component evaluations that included mechanical equipment evaluation and identifying and evaluating improvement alternatives. eHT identified, evaluated and prioritized potential improvements recommended to enable evaluated treatment components to comply with current and imminent federal regulations and TCEQ rules and regulations, focusing first and foremost on restoring and maintaining optimal performance of the MBR system. eHT identified long-term needs necessary to comply with projected future regulatory requirements and to stay dependable in-service over the next 5, 10 and 20 years. eHT developed alternative approaches to improve process performance, including replacement and/or improvements to existing processes and equipment and developed recommended improvements and/or changes in operation and maintenance to optimize the evaluated treatment components to optimize the evaluated treatment components. The recommended improvements were then prioritized within the City’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP). An evaluation report was prepared to summarize the findings of the evaluations conducted for each treatment component. eHT is now working with City staff to implement the proposed improvements to the City’s MBR facility on a phased basis.
