raw water is pumped to the plant from one of 54 wells throughout
the City, the new membrane softening process treats approximately
two-thirds, while one-third is treated by lime softening. The treated
water is then blended to provide the finished product. Treating
a large percentage of the flow via the membrane softening process
surpasses regulatory requirements by removing more than 90 percent
of the organic material, producing clear, colorless water.
Now, as the largest operational membrane softening process facility in the world,
the water treatment plant at the Utility Services complex is providing Boca Raton
residents and customers with regulatory-compliant, high-quality water today and
far into the future.
