Brandon-SD-WTP expansion


Water Treatment Plant Expansion – Brandon, South Dakota

About the Project

The City of Brandon has been experiencing steady growth, which has increased the demand for water from the City’s current WTP. Planning for continued growth the City worked with AE2S to evaluate expansion alternatives and also consider the softening treatment.

The City ultimately made the decision to double the WTP capacity, with a 2,000 gpm expansion, and to include the addition of softening with the use of Reverse Osmosis (RO). The WTP expansion includes aeration and detention for iron removal, gravity filtration with IMAR media for radium removal, and disinfection using chlorine. In addition, half of the water will be treated with RO with the goal of reducing the treated water hardness by 50-percent.
