Goldsworthy Desalter Project
Water Replenishment District of Southern California
LEE & RO provided engineering, design, and construction phase engineering services for a $12 million, 2,100 gpm capacity desalter project. The project objectives were to restore the fresh water aquifers by removing trapped seawater plumes and to demineralize groundwater and pump it to the CAL Water and City of Torrance domestic water distribution systems. The project elements included groundwater extraction wells and pump stations, reverse osmosis (RO) process feed pumps, RO product water pumps; RO modules, chemical systems; pipelines for transporting raw water, treated water and brine. Brine is discharged to the County Sanitation District’s trunk sewer.
