Tonka Water to Provide Refurbishment in Boca Raton, FL

Tonka Water has recently been chosen to complete water plant improvements in Boca Raton, Florida. The existing horizontal pressure filter system, used for membrane pre-treatment, experienced multiple underdrain failures resulting in partial plant shutdown. Tonka Water’s experience in membrane pre-treatment by pressure filtration is proving invaluable in providing new underdrains, airwash components and media to bring this critical system back online.

Tonka Water Selected for Expansion in Palm Beach County

Tonka Water was recently awarded a project for a 20 million gallon a day (MGD) expansion of an existing 10 MGD Tonka Water Organix™ ion exchange system in Palm Beach County, FL. Designed by GlobalTech, Inc of Boca Raton, FL, the expansion brings total organics removal capacity at Water Treatment Plant #8 to 30 MGD. The addition of 14 vessels assures the county of a reliable means to consistently treat their total organic carbon (TOC) to less than 3 mg/L and color to less than 5 color units.
Palm Beach County initially installed and commissioned a Tonka Water Organix™ ion exchange system downstream from lime softening in 2008 to address issues with total organic carbon (TOC), disinfection byproduct precursors (DBPs), and excessive color in their finished water. Rated at 10 MGD, this original seven-vessel system has since performed exceptionally well and is a proven, consistent and reliable process for the county to meet water quality requirements. As a county owned and operated facility, staff have prioritized proper operations and maintenance, leading to successful treatment.
Pleased with the performance of the initial system, the decision was made by the county to commit to additional ion exchange capacity for TOC and color removal. Throughout the design phase, Tonka Water assisted in designing what would become a cost effective addition of fourteen vessels and 20 MGD of treatment capacity. New innovations were incorporated into the system design ensuring efficient, state of the art cleaning and regeneration. The new system is on target to be commissioned in 2017, and once completed, the twenty-one vessel, 30 MGD capacity system at Water Treatment Plant #8 will stand alone as the largest municipal ion exchange system for organics removal or otherwise, in the United States.
Tonka Water is proud to be a part of the county's future treatment strategy.
