The City of Goodyear is using RO to reduce the TDS level in the well source water to achieve potable water with TDS < 750 mg/L. The concentrate is currently being discharged into the wastewater treatment plant. As the City grows there is concern that the brine will adversely impact the wastewater treatment plant. This paper summarizes the technical approach used to review water chemistry using specific ion concentrations and ratios to achieve the best results including analysis of evaporation pond alternatives, secondary RO and crystallizers.
