IWS was awarded a $2M contract with the City of San Luis, AZ to construct a Manganese Removal System in December 2014 and is currently constructing the 2,200 gpm treatment system featuring the Pureflow Filtration system.The City of San Luis wanted a “turn-key’ manganese removal system that will be a complete and fully functioning filtration system. The contractor is constructing, testing, and providing training and follow-up testing within the first year of operation to ensure that the system is reliable and the Owner’s staff are trained and knowledgeable operators. The manganese removal system must remove manganese from the raw well water (approximately 0.35 mg/l) to non-detect levels of 0.02 mg/l or less.
The scope of work for the contract is to install a complete manganese removal system for the drinking water system at Well Site No. 7. The site consists of two (2) groundwater production wells, Wells No. 11 and 12. The working includes a new packaged manganese removal facility, well pump replacement, 40’ by 60’ enclosure building and pad, 60,000 gallon reclaim tank, sludge mixing system, sludge sewer disposal, all mechanical piping (12” diameter), and all associated electrical and controls.For more information, contact the editor, Peter C.
