The City of Fort Bragg will host an informal reception and ribbon cutting ceremony for the long-awaited Aquaclear Desalination-Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System on Friday, October 8, 2021 at 2:00 PM at the City of Fort Bragg’s Corporation Yard, 31301 Cedar Street, Fort Bragg.

The City of Fort Bragg ordered the Desalination-Reverse Osmosis Treatment System five months ago to provide additional water during periods of salt-water intrusion of the Noyo River. This skid-mounted unit is capable of producing 200 gallons a minute of desalinated water, or 288,000 gallons per day. Because the City’s wastewater treatment plant treats waste using bacteria and specialty microbes to clean water, the amount of brine (concentrated saltwater) it can process is limited, restricting use of the desalination system to 12 hours per day. The daily capacity tops out at 144,000 gallons per day, which is approximately 25% of the City’s daily water use. The $325,000 desalination unit was delivered on September 24th and start-up testing was completed last week.

The City would like to thank the State Water Resources Control Board for making this project possible. The City received 100% funding assistance from the State Water Resources Control Board’s Financial Assistance Emergency Drinking Water Program.
