This paper will discuss the challenges and lessons learned during the permitting, construction and commissioning of the Marco Island surface water membrane filtration system. This paper will also discuss the master planning of the upgrades to the existing conventional and brackish water RO facilities and how the new membrane filtration system provided the highest benefit to MIU. The membrane filtration system will not only provide a reliable way to meet the disinfection requirements of the LT2, but will also provide reliable and cost-effective pretreatment for future low-pressure RO treatment both at the NWTP and the SWTP. Future low-pressure RO treatment will include a new membrane system at the NWTP, while the existing brackish water RO trains located at the SWTP will be converted to low pressure for treatment of surface water.
