SMRU Jupiter Island Water Treatment Facility (FL)

Highlights

  • 1.0 MGD expansion of existing 2.67 MGD facility with provisions for a 1.0 MGD future expansion.
  • Utilizes advanced reverse osmosis technology to purify water.
  • Haskell crews self-performed about 55 percent of project construction.

Jupiter Island wanted to solve growing water issues.

Solving current water supply demands provides limited value. That’s why South Martin Regional Utility (SMRU) looked to Haskell for a big-picture plan for a sustainable water treatment facility solution. Rather than simply cure a capacity issue, they also wanted to increase efficiency and water quality.

The facility employs a high-tech solution to boost water quality and decrease operating costs.

Our team designed and constructed a 1.0 MGD addition to the current 2.67 MGD facility and provided for a future 1.0 MGD expansion. The upgrade had a minimal effect on ongoing operations and implemented modern reverse osmosis technology to provide the highest quality, most cost effective water.

Haskell self-performed more than half of all project construction.

Haskell’s ability to self-perform an estimated 55 percent of project resources directly improved project safety and quality across the board. Self-performance expedited state approval permitting and coordination as well as approvals from local agencies. It was a long-term solution with clear benefits for both the town and residents.
