In 2016, the Clifton Water District (CWD) finished a project to replace their 1980’s era media filters with ultrafiltration membrane technology. The $15 million project included retrofitting a 12 million gallon per day membrane filtration system inside of an existing filter building. The membrane system has been designed in an “Open Platform” configuration, meaning that the racks and ancillary systems are designed around a multiple, similar membrane elements. This approach was selected to provide CWD with a range of benefits including generating competitive pressures for future element pricing, eliminating hurdles for adopting improved elements from across multiple suppliers’ product lines, and increasing the range of system customization. The presentation will focus on the design and performance of the UF membrane system.
