Water System Improvements – Reservoir
The Town of Concrete (Town) was awarded funding for construction costs related to the construction of a new water reservoir in the Town of Concrete. The OV480 Submerged Membrane Unit (SMU) the town chose to install is a newer membrane technology than what the town currently has installed in its treatment plant.
These membranes are a self-healing, flexible, flat sheet design. The flexible sheets are highly resistant to damaging debris and are non-clogging. The nominal effective pore size of the Kubota flat plate membrane is 0.4 microns where the OV480 is 0.04 microns, this will allow for better filtration and reduction in turbidity within the treatment plant as well as an overall reduction in operational costs at the treatment plant.
The total funds awarded and expended on this effort was $586,280.00.
Public Hearing: September 13, 2021; The purpose of this public hearing is to gather public input on the project and to assess project performance
