Bolton & Menk's pilot plant is a portable, state-of-the-art, small scale water treatment facility owned and operated for more than 25 years and has recently been updated to serve communities better. The trailer is laid out to help explain water treatment and wastewater filtration options to cities prior to full-scale construction. It features flexible configurations, including gravity filters and membrane components to conduct testing for a variety of treatment options. The system provides real world conditions to optimize filter type, media selection, and chemical feed.
