Symposium attendees have the option of signing up for a tour of a local water treatment plant. Located approximately 20 minutes from the symposium hotel, the tour offers a unique look at a state-of-art ozone-based water treatment facility. The plant, which was brought on line in 2012, uses a highly optimized process for removing the naturally-occurring sulfide that is present in much of Florida’s groundwater. Its fully automated and redundant control system ensures that the plant is able to continuously provide a reliable source of water for both drinking and fire-protection needs in Orange County. The tour will give symposium attendees a glimpse at how leading edge automation is being used in the municipal water sector to minimize costs, increase efficiency, and offer enhanced reliability.
