The City of Butte, MT had to put in a treatment plant when it found that the existing chlorination system was producing byproducts that exceeded EPA limits. The plant was designed to take advantage of the elevation difference between its reservoir and the City, and the ceramic membrane system was selected because it could handle the higher influent pressure. Since its start-up in 2017, the 7 MGD system has generated less than 14,000 gallons of wastewater per day, on average, and has provided drinking water to the City using only the head from the reservoir. Engineers will learn of a viable method for providing a low-energy on-demand system, while plant personnel will learn how such a system can be operated to minimize wastewater production.
