The City of Marco Island recently converted its existing 1.0 Million Gallon per Day (MGD) Average Month contact stabilization plant to a state of the art 3.0 MGD Membrane Biological Reactor (MBR). The facility is expandable to 5.0 MGD in the future. By converting the existing treatment facility into an MBR system the City was able to upgrade the plant capacity without having to move their adjacent water treatment plant to a different location.
