Current Projects

Here are the 2024 Wastewater Treatment Facility’s (WWTF) biggest undertakings:

Automation Project:

  • Automation will provide increase options of operations through expanded accessibility, monitoring, and control of all treatment processes and equipment.

1st Stage Trickling Filter/Final Clarifier Improvements

  • Applied for Clean Water Fund (CWF) Loan to fund the estimated $16 million project.
  • The project involves the rehabilitation of the WWTF’s first stage trickling filters and rehabilitation of the four existing secondary clarifiers and replacement of the drive mechanisms.  The first stage filters provide most of the WWTF’s BOD removal. Replacing the nearly 50-year old filter media, much of which is likely plugged with debris, will improve BOD removal performance, particularly during cold-weather months and/or heavy BOD loadings or foaming from multiple industrial customers.  Replacement of the WWTF’s secondary clarifier mechanisms will improve performance and reliability, especially since three or the four mechanisms are nearly 50-years old and fourth mechanism is more than 20-years old.
