Municipal Surface Water Management
Did you know…?
Approximately 44,200 million gallons per day of water is withdrawn for public supply with 66 percent of that coming from surface-water sources.
Reservoirs and drinking water facilities often have issues with their surface water. These issues can range from taste and odor complaints to toxic blue green algae blooms. To counter these common issues, we have developed a proactive management approach to control these issues. This type of program not only improves taste and odor, but it also creates a more stable environment within the water body. If you are a drinking water manager having a difficult time controlling these issues, then let us help. We have experience with small and large water bodies. We also performed one of the largest planktonic algae treatments in the United States at Eagle Creek Reservoir. Several of our successful municipal water supply projects are summarized in the following case studies and journal publications:
