About Water Treatment

Recognized as an industry leader in water treatment, Plummer has in-depth experience bringing existing facilities to compliance as well as designing new facilities to meet current and anticipated requirements. We have a thorough understanding of water quality issues including total organic carbon, inorganic constituents (iron, manganese, etc.), disinfection by product precursors, and taste and odor, and we work with our clients to design facilities that address these issues. Whether designing a facility with a total capacity of less than 1 million gallons per day (MGD), or a plant capable of treating over 800 MGD, our engineers and designers collaborate to select processes and technologies that make the most sense.

We have experience with direct, conventional, and membrane facilities. We have designed systems including but not limited to the following: pre-oxidation, including ozone, chlorine dioxide, potassium permanganate, and powder activated carbon; pretreatment, including horizontal and vertical shaft flocculation, circular and rectangular (high rate) sedimentation basins, and solids contact processes; filtration, including dual and multi-media, microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis. Our disinfection process experience includes gaseous chlorine, bulk and onsite generation of sodium hypochlorite, and chloramines. Our team also has extensive experience in pre and post-treatment chemical storage and feed system design, backwash treatment and recycle systems, high service pump stations, and potable water storage facilities. No matter what treatment process we are implementing, or technology and equipment type we are selecting, we deliver facilities that transform our clients’ futures.

Water Treatment
Senior Engineer

David and his team have solid, strong experience in addressing a range of treatment-related issues. His background is in water treatment activities ranging from project planning to pilot testing, process and facility design, and construction. He has worked on more than 50 design projects for treatment plants with capacities ranging from less than 1 MGD to more than 800 MGD.  Many of these projects included modifications to disinfection facilities (both liquid and gas chlorine systems), storage tanks, and high service pump stations.

Sample Projects

Firestone Water Treatment Plant

Phase 1 design capacity is 1.5 MGD with planning and design provisions for a future Phase 2 expansion to 5 MGD.

Elbert Creek Water Company/Glacier Club Water Treatment Plant

This project, which received a 2020 American Council of Engineering Companies Colorado Honor Award, included the first gravity operational mode membrane filtration system in the state of Colorado.

Mansfield Bud Ervin Water Treatment Plant

Plummer has worked with the City for over 20 years to evaluate, plan, and design facilities that have allowed the WTP to keep ahead of the rapidly increasing water demands.

Waxahachie Robert W. Sokoll Water Treatment Plant

Plummer designed a new 20 million gallons per day (mgd) microfiltration membrane water treatment plant (WTP) shared by the City of Waxahachie and Rockett Special Utility District.

Lubbock North Water Treatment Plant

Plummer conducted an in-depth evaluation of process, mechanical and electrical equipment, and Laboratory and Administrative Building facilities.
