Fulton Road Membrane Filtration Facility

Floyd County Facility

PROJECT SUMMARY

CTI was retained to conduct a flow study of the well and a separate study of treatment alternatives. It was determined that continuous monitoring of well and perched water levels, the well capacity could be more than doubled. A pressure ultrafiltration membrane filtration facility was selected as the most cost-effective solution.
