A Parsons Corp. joint venture has won a $86 million contract to work with program management and design teams overseeing a brackish groundwater desalination program in San Antonio.
The joint venture will build program components and operate a treatment plant for six months under the construction manager at-risk contract, Parsons said Tuesday.
Virginia Grebbien, a Parsons group president, said the company aims to use reverse osmosis membrane technology to remove salt from brackish groundwater.
San Antonio plans to build 13 raw water production wells, three deep injection wells, a 10 million gallon-per-day reverse osmosis membrane water treatment plant and a 7.5 million gallon-per-day reservoir to store water.
The city is also building chemical treatment systems, supervisory and data acquisition controls and an administration building to include a public tour route, pilot plant and training facility.
