This paper presents a successful story for optimizing the design of an industrial reuse facility using MF/RO/UV. Design parameters were established based on pilot testing and engineering evaluation. However, the sizing of the MF / RO system and the feed and product tanks becomes very challenging due to site restrictions and the dramatic variability in hourly feed water flows and demands. An advanced computing technique, Multi-Objective Optimization, was applied successfully to simulate the proposed system operation, optimize the treatment capacity and tank
size, and graphically demonstrate how the design parameters impact the water savings and costs. This approach offered opportunities to save millions of dollars in design, construct
