Beers/Skanska Construction and The South Florida Water Management District has awarded The Water Management Group, Inc. (WMG), a contract to provide water treatment systems and services for two new Storm Water pump stations to be located in the Florida Everglades. These pump stations are an important part of The Everglades Restoration Project, the largest ecosystem restoration program in the history of Florida, and quite possible the entire United States.
The contract, worth approximately $500,000, includes the supply of Filters, Softeners, Strainers, Reverse Osmosis Systems, storage tanks, pumps and other related equipment.
"We are very proud to be chosen as the vendor of choice for the water treatment phase of this important and enormous project" said Jeff Dunn, Vice President of WMG. "Organics laden canal water will be treated by the integrated systems and used for cooling and lubrication of the pumps that are capable of pumping 4000 cfs of water and approximately 2 billion gallons per day. A small percentage of the treated water will be used for potable purposes by plant personnel.
