The Rykowski Lane Water Supply and Treatment System consists of six wells and a water treatment plant. The Orange County Department of Health ruled that additional treatment should be added to the plant due to particles of similar size to Giardia and Cryptosporidium found in nearby wells. KC prepared a conceptual upgrade plan. The chosen treatments included a coagulant to improve the filtration of the particles and an ultraviolet disinfection system, which provided additional capacity to achieve 5 log removal. KC also provided the conceptual upgrade plan, design, preparation of contract documents, and engineering services during startup and construction.
