Improvements brought the 32-year-old facility up to modern standards. A preliminary engineering report and early design efforts examined potential reuse of the existing equipment. For example, designing hydraulics around the existing UV disinfection, reduced construction costs by five percent.
Improvements to the wastewater treatment plant include a new administration building housing the recycle and waste pumping stations, mechanical screens, plant controls, and a laboratory. Other features include oxidation ditch surface aerators, clarifier mechanisms, and post aeration facilities.
