Abstract - Morovis Sur Water Treatment Plant is one of the many water treatment plants in Puerto Rico which do not fully comply with regulatory requirements established by federal drinking water regulations. Following the methodology established by the Environmental Protection Agency Composite Correction Program, this project evaluates the plant’s current performance, defines optimization performance goals and identifies the improvements needed to achieve those goals. Various treatment process improvements are necessary for the plant to fully comply with all applicable regulations. Major performance limiting factors identified were lack of plant process controllability, disinfection unit design less than adequate, lack of plant supervision and policies not clearly communicated to plant personnel. The alternative selected to optimize the plant consists of utilizing current infrastructure and provide the necessary improvements to achieve optimization goals.
