Over the years, SSE has designed a multitude of water production systems. We work closely with MoDNR – DGLS to identify possible deep water solutions. Our engineers and technicians have been able to identify deep water bearing formations that are able to serve both small Districts and large Municipalities alike. Our SSE team has designed dozens of systems tapping deep water sources that have produced millions of gallons of pure drinking water.
In cases where acceptable groundwater quality and/or quantity cannot be found, SSE has designed water treatment plants for our clients to cope with those unique situations. SSE has the knowledge and experience to work with any budget in designing a system that deals with the unique problems that some communities have in obtaining clean water. We have designed Iron and Manganese removal plants, surface water treatment plants, and membrane plants.
Occasionally, the EPA adds new requirements that a community must meet or usage growth causes systems to produce past their operating limits. We have helped several communities save money by retrofitting or modify their existing treatment facilities to meet any of these new demands. Recently we designed a surface water treatment plant for the City of Ironton, Missouri. SSE was able to retrofit their existing water treatment plant into a state-of-the-art facility including an ultra-filtration membrane treatment system with a SCADA system for control. This retrofit saved the city thousands of dollars and has allowed them to meet and exceed all their requirements!!
Water storage and disinfection has also been a cornerstone of most of our water system designs. Chlorine gas or liquid feed systems have been designed for a host of our clients across the area. Tank designs can be provided for any size or style that may be necessary for the particular application and budget. Such designs include standpipes, elevated storage, ground storage or pneumatic tanks. Booster stations are commonly used in conjunction with water storage and can be designed for your specific needs.
