Abstract:

The objective of this presentation is to relate The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico's recent experience of selecting sustainable water treatment technologies for application in challenging conditions.

Sixteen existing water treatment facilities are now being upgraded with five different water treatment technologies and three new water intake technologies. The technologies were chosen based on their ability to specifically treat high turbidity raw water and to remain in service when faced with challenging conditions and constrained operational resources.
