To address the issues of an aging WTP and licensure requirements, the Wiamea WTP began a project to upgrade its plant with membrane filtration to reliably produce 4 MGD. A demonstration study occurred to confirm produced water quality and introduce operators to membrane filtration processes. With only 2.0-log Giardia removal credit given, there have been several discussions with regulators to adjust it, but if no headway if made the disinfection system must be upgraded as well. This will only add to the paramount concern over capital costs associated with building a plant.
