Jardine Water Purification Plant Chlorine System Improvements
Jardine Water Purification Plant Chlorine System Improvements

The Jardine Water Purification Plant (JWPP), is the largest capacity water filtration plant in the world, located in Chicago, Illinois. It draws raw water from two of the city's water cribs far offshore in Lake Michigan and sends nearly one billion gallons (4 million m3) of water per day to consumers in the north and central portions of the city. CMT is the lead engineer for the Chlorine Upgrade. This upgrade encompasses the addition of a redundant chlorine scrubber, modifications to the existing SCADA System to align the Chlorine Control Room with the JWPP SCADA Control Room and upgrades to the existing evaporators, chlorinators and chlorinator flow controllers (26) to a new control platform.
