The Rueter-Hess Water Purification Facility (RHWPF) is a ceramic membrane facility with Actiflo™ Turbo and Actiflo™ Carb pre-treatment processes owned and operated by the Parker Water and Sanitation District (PWSD) with a nameplate design capacity of 10 million gallons per day (mgd). The RHWPF currently treats blended water consisting of local surface water, alluvial and Denver Basin aquifer water, and reclaimed water from PWSD’s two Water Reclamation Facilities. Although the RHWPF has been sending high quality water to the PWSD distribution system since July 2015, membrane fouling has resulted in operational challenges, including lower membrane permeability that has limited the overall plant capacity. With no other treatment plant having similar technologies to reach out to for assistance, over the past two years, PWSD has continued to optimize the plant with the assistance of the equipment supplier and third party consultants.
