Aquaria Water LLC, a joint venture between Inima and Bluestone Energy, has developed the Taunton River Desalination Plant to provide high-quality drinking water to the City of Brockton, MA and the surrounding communities of Southeastern MA.

Inima USA is operating the 10-million-gallon-per-day Desalination facility in Dighton, Massachusetts that utilizes reverse osmosis to produce potable water from a tidal reach of the Taunton River.

As part of the system, Aquaria Water constructed a 16.5 mile long, 20-inch diameter water pipeline that extends from the Taunton River Desalination Plant in Dighton through the City of Taunton and Towns of Raynham, Easton and West Bridgewater, connecting to the City of Brockton s municipal water system.
Aquaria Water LLC recently announced that the first of several innovative Intake Micro-Filtration systems have been installed to minimize environmental impacts associated with entrainment and impingement.  Inima and Hanson, Murphy and Associates (HMA), North Easton, MA. have installed an intake design incorporating micro-filtration elements manufactured by Filtrex, Attleboro, MA. in a stainless steel structure fabricated by BEPeterson, Avon, MA.
