Tuscumbia Water-Softening Plant

Tuscumbia, Alabama


Tuscumbia is Alabama's first to use blended series membrane technology

Garver provided project design, funding assistance, bond issue assistance, construction management, and operational support for a new water-softening treatment plant that was the first in Alabama to use a blended series membrane process. Teaming with the City of Tuscumbia, Garver’s design replaced a 60-year-old plant that had outlived its usefulness with one that is double the size and outfitted with raw-water pumping, pretreatment basins, membranes, disinfection, high-service pumping, and a 500,000-gallon clearwell. The filtration technology was the centerpiece of the 4 million-gallons-per-day-plant, which purified and softened the city’s water that was high in alkalinity. The blended series membrane process meets all filtration requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
