Treatment Facility Experience
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.
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.
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.
