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.
Repurpose Building to Reduce Biosolids
By constructing the new biosolids handling equipment within the decommissioned pretreatment building, the City was able to repurpose an existing building and reuse some existing equipment. The City of Watertown now has a low maintenance, long-term solution for processing and handling the liquid biosolids while also allowing for disposal of the biosolids without relying on the availability of farmland.
L39 Lift Station Design and Construction
HR Green is providing preliminary design, final design, permitting, and certain construction phase services for several MCES projects in the City of Mound. The projects include demolition of an existing wastewater treatment plant; a new gravity interceptor; a new lift station L38 and a new West Maintenance Facility.
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.
Pump Station Replacement in the City of Sioux Falls
Sioux Falls, SD
HR Green has worked with the City of Sioux Falls on design and construction of several lift stations and even eliminations of other lift stations. These projects improve maintenance access, functionality, standby power, and safety, and to provide for future growth of the city.
McHenry Wastewater Treatment Facility Central Pump Station
HR Green has completed several projects over the past twelve years evaluating and upgrading the City of McHenry’s Central Plant, South Plant, and Sanitary Sewer System. Since 2007 this work has been leading up to the elimination of the aging Central Plant.
WRA Ankeny Pump Station Improvements
The Des Moines Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WRA) took over operation of the City of Ankeny’s wastewater treatment facilities to provide a connection point to the WRA’s interceptor system and provide equalization and pumping for peak, wet-weather conditions.
Hopkins Area Lift Station Improvements
This project consists of a new lift station and associated gravity and force main interceptors that will allow phase-out of the existing L27 lift station. HR Green began detailed design work when a site had been selected in Oakes Park in Hopkins.
Winona Drive Lift Station and Sewer Main
The purpose of the lift station and sewer main project was to eliminate an existing siphon under Vince Bayou and to reduce the flow to the existing West Pitts Lift Station to more effectively convey the wastewater flow from the service area.
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.
Westside High Flow Pump Station and Forcemain Improvements
Des Moines, IA
The Des Moines WRA maintains a vast wastewater collection system with the Westside Equalization Basin and Pumping Station being the system’s largest wastewater pumping facility.
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.
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.
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.
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.
