EMCOR Group, Inc. announced that its subsidiary Poole & Kent Company of Florida has been awarded a contract to construct, equip and performance test a 14.5 million gpd nanofiltration water facility in Jupiter, Fla. The value of the contract is $36.6 million.

“Towns and municipalities in Florida and across the country are requiring and demanding increasingly high-tech facilities and systems to address complex water resource challenges, which must be met in order to ensure the delivery of vital services to their citizens,” said Steve Jordan, president and CEO of Poole & Kent Company of Florida. “Water and particularly water treatment issues will persist as water shortages become more frequent as a result of aquifer depletion combined with the migration of the U.S. population south and west.
