The Riverside City Council has accepted a bid from Rhino Industries to replace water plant membranes at their wastewater treatment plant. These membranes are a thin sheet of material used to separate contaminants from water such as microorganisms and parasites. Rhino Industries’ bid came in at $81,523.08, about $4,000 higher than the lowest bid from Consolidated Water Solutions. Within the bid package, the company will assist in the install and removal of membranes at no additional cost and had the fastest lead time compared to the two other bid packages, being 4-6 days. The council approved the motion 4-1, with Jeanine Redlinger being the only nay vote.
