Siemens to provide a membrane filtration system for Highland Park, Illinois' Water Treatment Plant upgrade
The plant, located in this North Shore Chicago suburb, serves approximately 60,000 people. Built in 1930 and expanded twice, the facility's treatment capacity is now at its limits. Retrofitting the plant will involve removing the roof from one of four settling basins, and installing a 30-MGD (113- MLD) membrane system in what will become the membrane process room. During construction, the existing water treatment plant will continue to operate in order to provide Highland Park's customers with all the water they need. When this retrofit project is completed, the City will have increased its rated treatment capacity by over 40% in the space once occupied by only 25% of its coagulation/flocculation/settling process.
The City chose the Memcor submerged membrane system following a 12-month pilot study and competitive procurement process, whereby Siemens' Memcor CS technology was shown to provide the best value.
The Memcor CS submerged membrane filtration system is popular for retrofit of aging drinking water plants as it offers great design flexibility, a lower life-cycle cost and compact footprint. It also provides a greater than 4-log removal of Cryptosporidium, Giardia and bacteria, over 1.5-log virus rejection and a silt density index of less than 2.0, regardless of changing feed water conditions.
Memcor is a trademark of Siemens and its affiliates in some countries.
