Abstract

The overall goal of this research was to create a useful tool for small, coastal water utilities as they consider alternative treatment processes when facing variable water quality. A saltwater intrusion event in Cedar Key, FL was used as a case study to analyze the impacts of the extreme event on water treatment. The overnight doubling and increase of the conductivity in their wells in late May 2012 led to the purchase and installation of two reverse osmosis units by the Cedar Key Water and Sewer District. The specific goals of this study were to (1) provide a detailed outline of events, (2) conduct a life cycle assessment of the treatment process before and after saltwater intrusion, and (3) discuss the lessons learned from the Cedar Key saltwater intrusion event.
