Improving Jordan Lake Water Quality

Jordan Lake, ResMix 5000, Water Quality Improvement

Jordan Lake provides drinking water to 300,000 residents in the Apex and Cary regions of North Carolina. After years of management approaches and under-designed attempts, WEARS Australia were engaged to install two ResMix 5000CC systems to provide a proven and reliable solution to Jordan Lakes water quality issues.  

Australian Company leads the way 

WEARS have completed the installation of two ResMix 5000CC systems into Jordan Lake, North Carolina. The lake has a long history of inconsistent water quality resulting in; water treatment challenges, taste and odour issues, increased blue-green algae levels, low dissolved oxygen and elevated levels of dissolved iron and manganese. The managers of Jordan Lake undertook a lengthy study which proposed three solutions:

  1. An expensive upgrade to the water treatment plant.
  2. Heavily dosing water with expensive chemicals.
  3. Installing a source water management system like WEARS ResMix 5000cc systems.

Sustainable and effective solutions

The installation of a proven disruptive technology such as the WEARS ResMix solution represented the most cost effective solution but had secondary benefits such as the significant reduction in chemicals needed to treat water, significantly less energy demands, and did not create additional residuals requiring disposal. 

The WEARS solution was assessed by the US Army Corps of Engineers completing an Environmental Assessment (EA) as part of the water quality enhancement project. The WEARS ResMix system was assessed against other available market options and chosen for Jordan Lake.
