Amiad Completes Venetian Golf & River Club Installation
Amiad Filtration Systems, headquartered in Oxnard, Calif., has completed of one its more prestigious installations: The Venetian Golf & River Club in Bonita Springs, Florida—a WCI Community development.
What makes this property most notable is that unlike other WCI developments, The Venetian Golf & River Club is a “green community.” Regulated by the Florida Green Building Coalition, this development must meet many stringent standards, including near-zero tolerance for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and drought tolerant landscaping.
To meet its landscape standards, WCI brought in Amiad Filtration Systems. According to Steve Fournier, Amiad’s regional manager for the Southeast, The Venetian’s existing pumping system was new, but had been installed without any filtration to provide irrigated water to its resident’s homes and golf course.
The Venetian’s water source comes from a man-made, retention pond. “The pond had begun maturing back to its natural state,” explained Fournier. “As a result, the pond began to accumulate algae, snails and other undesirable organic contaminates. These contaminates were clogging the lawn irrigation/water distribution equipment throughout the community.”
To address its needs, Amiad installed two EBS filters. These systems are commonly used among Amiad turf applications for their high-flow rate capacity, large filter area, and automatic, self-cleaning capabilities.
