Tim Baumgartner, P.E., Senior Vice President of EMC Engineering Services, has been selected to present a paper entitled “Growing Community meets Georgia Coastal Initiative with Reuse Water System” at the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Conference (WEFTEC 2012) in October in New Orleans (http://www.weftec.org/technicalprogram/).
Tim will be presenting a case study and information on a project completed for the City of Rincon for improvements to their one-million gallon per day treatment plant to include a filter system and UV disinfectant to produce tertiary treated reuse water. Along with this, the conveyance system was designed, constructed and put into operation in 2011. This included a reuse pumping station, 16,000 LF of piping, a golf course irrigation building and pumping system, a new irrigation system, reuse storage ponds and SCADA system to supply reuse water for irrigation at the Lost Plantation Golf Course and other planned areas in the future for the City of Rincon. This will help meet the Coastal Georgia Water and Wastewater plan for managing Salt Water Intrusion by reducing ground water use and treated effluent discharged into the Savannah River Basin.
