Water Management Group, Inc has announced the commissioning of a 1,000,000-gallon per day water treatment plant for Lost Tree Club in North Palm Beach, Fla. The treated water will be used to irrigate the fairways, tees and greens at the ocean front golf club.
The source of the raw water is the Floridan Aquifer, which is located about 1,200 feet below the ground. Water from the Floridan aquifer is highly brackish and unsuitable for potable or irrigation use. The New Water Treatment Plant will utilize a reverse osmosis system, designed and built by Water Management Group, Inc. The water produced by the reverse osmosis system meets the requirements for water for use for Golf Course irrigation.
Utilizing brackish water as an "alternative water supply" is encouraged and supported by the South Florida Water Management District, which provides funding for these types of projects.
