The success of this plant with its open sea intake and high turbidity Gulf of Paria water, was summarized as the following; biological control ending continuous use of chlorine, a proven plant design – no developmental features, clear definitions of plant objectives, strong operator and maintenance training programs and excellent instrumentation and computer process control.
