Abstract: To keep pace with increasingly stringent regulations and growing demand, Lee County Utilities in southwest Florida recently constructed a new, larger drinking water facility that treats three separate, and very different, groundwater sources. The 14 mgd Green Meadows Water Treatment Plant near Ft. Myers includes a unique combination of reverse-osmosis, ion exchange, and degasification systems to treat the highly variable water supplies as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
