Activated Sludge Treatment Facility Provisioned For Future Build-Out
Phase I of the project consisted of designing a new 3.0 MGD activated sludge wastewater treatment facility including influent screens, grit removal, equalization, aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, effluent disk filters and UV disinfection. The plant is also equipped with aerobic digestion, belt filter press and truck loading building, plant water system, MCC building, control building and standby power generation. It is provisioned for a future build-out capacity of 6-10 MGD.
In preparation for the plant design, in 2004, Hussey Gay Bell also spearheaded the Environmental Review and Planning Document which consisted of preparation of the Environmental Review and Planning Document required to apply for a State Revolving Fund loan for the project. The Environmental Review and Planning Document included build-out growth projections, evaluation of wastewater treatment alternatives, cost analysis and final recommendations.
Hussey Gay Bell’s role in the project consisted of providing Alternative Technology Evaluation, Antidegradation Analysis, Environmental Information Document, Design Development Report, Watershed Assessment, Discharge Permit Application Preparation, Preliminary & Final Design, Bid & Construction Phase Services, O&M Manual Preparation, and Start-Up and Training Services.
The construction of the new plant was completed in 2008.
