Jesup Embarks On Journey To New 2.5 MGD Wastewater Treatment Plant
Hussey Gay Bell served as the Lead Engineer for the City’s new 2.5 MGD extended aeration activated sludge wastewater treatment plant facility, responsible for providing full design and construction phase services for the project which was constructed by Savannah-based, BRW Construction.
The Jesup Wastewater Treatment Plant is a new conventional activated sludge treatment facility designed to treat 2.5 MGD average daily flow with provisions for expansion to 4.0 MGD. The facility was designed to EPA Class I Reliability standards. The existing wastewater treatment plant consisted of influent screens, grit removal, aeration basins, splitter box, clarifiers, return activated sludge, ultraviolet disinfection, and sludge holding tank. The existing plant was maintained online during construction and was decommissioned following successful start-up and testing of the new facility.

This $12 million project reached completion in the spring of 2015.
