Reverse Osmosis Unit

May contain: architecture, building, and factory

The District installed a Reverse Osmosis Unit in July of 2016. This equipment is used to treat brackish and mineral heavy community water from the existing well field. This equipment is used only during high chloride events exceeding 250 mg/L. The technology, purchased through an American based company in Minnesota, called Wigen Technologies, is capable of treating of up to 3500 mg/L. Staff obtained two grants to fund the RO project. The first was, a USDA grant of $500,000. The second, obtained through California Prop 84 funding through the Department of Drinking Water (DDW) was for $365,000.
