FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. — Nemacolin Woodlands (NWL), a five-star resort, spa, and golf club in Fayetteville contracted Penn E&R to completely redesign its water supply system. NWL needed about 250,000 gallons of potable water a day for its guests, plus another 250,000 for irrigation purposes. The resort failed to meet those needs due to its raw water’s high iron concentration and low pH level.
Penn E&R designed and built a virtually operator-independent water treatment system to convert soluble iron ions into insoluble iron hydroxide. Because a disruption in water supply could be devastating to the resort, the project was completed in just four short months.
KEY PROJECT FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Design and construction of ground water supply and treatment system with redundancy
- Demolition of existing facilities
- Excavation, backfill, and grading
- Site restoration
- Post-construction operation and maintenance (O&M)
