    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is constructing a $100 million water treatment plant for Fort Irwin and National Training Center.

    The facility is a design-build effort by CDM Smith Construction to provide six million gallons of water per day to the inhabitants of the NTC.

    50,000 soldiers train at the NTC annually and 85 percent of the post's permanently assigned community live on the post, which adds up to a very significant amount of water consumed and utilized for day-to-day operations.

    The new plant will use a three-stage, electro-dialysis reversal (EDR) water treatment plant that treats all contaminants found in Fort Irwin's ground water in accordance with federal and state requirements.

    The plant will include: an electro-dialysis reversal (EDR) primary treatment, lime softening clarifiers, lime solids thickeners, lime sludge lagoons, reverse osmosis (RO) filters, brine treatment facility, concentrate equalization basins and a mechanical evaporator tower and feed tank, and three evaporation ponds to achieve the post’s 99 percent water recovery rate.
    The project also includes water system improvement and supporting utilities and infrastructure upgrades.
