Brothers of Mercy Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades

In order to accommodate an expansion to the retirement and assisted living community, it was necessary to upgrade the existing wastewater treatment system to help replace worn assets along, with expansion of the plant capacity. Several alternatives were evaluated, including evaluation of membrane technology in comparison to expansion of their existing fixed film treatment system as part of a preliminary engineering study. Expansion of the existing biological fixed film process was ultimately selected, and facility expanded to accommodate a second process train, as well as updates to existing infrastructure to meet the regulatory treatment requirements.
