Packaged Membrane Filtration System Provides Optimum Solution for Historic Resort
The Homestead, America’s oldest destination resort, is located approximately 170 miles west of Richmond, Va. The resort began providing guest accommodations in 1766, and today features 486 guestrooms, 88 suites, skiing, golfing, skating, a beautiful spa and many other amenities. Homestead Water Company, the private company established to serve the resort, also supplies water to about 420 additional area customers. The private water system is fed from springs located on nearby Warm Springs Mountain. The water has a relatively consistent temperature of 55ºF, and low turbidity ranging from less than 1.0 NTU to 2.0 NTU. However, to meet the requirements of the Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR), the water company needed a filtration technology that would provide an absolute barrier against pathogens such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, and bacteria.
