HR Green provides comprehensive wastewater services to move public, private, and industrial projects from conceptual planning through design, financing, permitting, construction, start-up and operation.
We assist public and private clients with new, technologically advanced wastewater treatment plants and collection systems, aging treatment and collection infrastructure, higher design flows, compliance with current and future NPDES permits, and implementation of improvements to match funding. When it comes to maintaining the viable operation of treatment and collection systems, we work with you to get your facility running and help streamline the process. And if your wastewater treatment needs include high strength waste due to industrial applications, we can also address the specific needs of these types of projects efficiently and economically.
Collection System Improvements
In the spring of 2015, portions of the City of Liberty flooded, revealing extensive problems with infiltration and inflow in the City’s collection system. The City had struggled to address needs and develop plans for the maintenance of their sanitary sewer collection system, and they sought a cost-effective way to identify problem locations and help in planning future operations and maintenance work.
Iowa Great Lakes Sanitary District
The Iowa Great Lakes Sanitary District (IGLSD) intercepts the wastewater from seven Iowa cities (Spirit Lake, Arnolds Park, Okoboji, West Okoboji, Wahpeton and Milford) and the unincorporated areas in the region around the Iowa Great Lakes in Northwest Iowa.
East and West Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
HR Green provided bidding and construction phase services to the City of Cleveland, Texas for their East and West Wastewater Treatment Plant modifications project.
Wastewater Treatment Facility Improvements
The Facility Plan report included a thorough evaluation of existing treatment processes and structures as well as recommended improvements to meet future conditions.
Water Reclamation Facility Effluent Filter Improvements
Sioux Falls, SD
The City of Sioux Falls Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) treats wastewater from throughout the city, thus protecting the Big Sioux River from pollution. This outstanding project replaced filters at the WRF, re-using the existing concrete tanks where the filters were located.
The City of Walker had a 2-cell controlled discharge lagoon to treat the community’s wastewater and required the system to discharge more frequently.
Facility Optimized for Highly Variable Flows
The Iowa Great Lakes Sanitary District (IGLSD) Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) treats municipal wastewater from a service area of approximately 12,000 acres. The population served by the IGLSD Wastewater Treatment Plant is highly variable due to increased use of the lakes during summer and holidays.
Plan for Future Treatment Capacity
The Village of Richmond had experienced rapid development and required new wastewater treatment facilities to accommodate future growth. HR Green was the first in Illinois to perform an in-depth study to weigh the impact of future discharge on water quality and the study is now used as guideline model for the IEPA.
South St. Paul Interceptor Improvements
St. Paul, MN
Wastewater from the Cities of South St. Paul is pumped through the forcemain to the Metropolitan Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWWTP), a distance of approximately four miles, and was showing signs that could lead to failure.
Interceptor Improvements Incorporate “Complete Streets”
Richfield, MN, Edina, MN
The Edina-Richfield Interceptor Improvements project constructed a regional sanitary sewer across Richfield to accommodate redevelopment in Edina. Standard MCES practice is to repair streets in a fashion similar to their original condition. However, HR Green used a Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) approach to engage the public in the design of 75th and 76th Streets in Richfield. The result is Richfield’s first “Complete Street” system, which encourages walking, bicycling and mass transit use. This method was also less costly for MCES, resulting in a win-win outcome for Richfield and MCES.
Addresses Aging Infrastructure with Facility Plan
The City was in the midst of rapid growth and it quickly became apparent that the community needed master planning completed for its water and wastewater system to address aging infrastructure in the older portions of the community as well as expansion plans for new developments.
Burlington’s Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
The City of Burlington had been propositioned by a major industry in the mid-2000s but they were not able to offer the sewer treatment capacity desired of the industry. Losing the potential development opportunity resulted in the City’s decision to move forward with a major upgrade to their Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) to prepare for future economic development opportunities.
Mundelein Wastewater Treatment Plant – Wetland Mitigation
An wastewater treatment plant expansion project required the Village to mitigate for causing impacts to the ﬂoodplain and surrounding area.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades
Wood Dale, IL
HR Green was retained by the City of Wood Dale, Illinois to complete the preliminary design for the North WWTP Plant Upgrades.
Empire WWTP Outfall and Rosemount Interceptor
The Rosemount Empire planning area is located in the southeastern part of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and includes the cities of Apple Valley, Lakeville, Farmington, Rosemount, and Empire Township. Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) provides wastewater collection and treatment for this area.
