This paper is a case study that discusses increasing the recovery of the he Leo J. Vander Lans Water Treatment Facility (LVLWTF) to 92%. The plant was designed or a microfiltration recovery of 94% and a reverse osmosis recovery rate of 85%. In this study the 3rd stage RO system was piloted to confirm its viability. This paper then highlights the design effort to determine the best processes to increase the recovery and summarize basic design criteria and costs.
