Severn Trent Services has been selected to design and build a desalination plant for the Maravia Country Club Estates in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The work will be performed by the Severn Trent Services office in Torrance, Calif., which supports the UAT line of membrane filtration systems.

Maravia Country Club Estates conducted a comprehensive evaluation of competitive bids for a 1 million gal-per-day desalination plant. Maravia executives and their professional advisors were impressed with Severn Trent's innovative solutions and world class service in addition to their commitment to protect the environment. The facility will be the largest desalination plant in La Paz, Mexico's fourth largest municipality.

Maravia Country Club Estates is a 5,000-acre tourist, residential and golf community overlooking the Sea of Cortez with panoramic views of Espiritu Santo Island, an ecological preserve recognized as having one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Maravia is committed to investing in the best available technologies to protect the environment including state-of-the-art solar energy systems in every home and a 500 kWh solar energy farm to power the desalination plant.
