For 15 years, plans to double the capacity of Michigan’s Zeeland Clean Water Plant remained stalled as the City of Zeeland worked toward a joint wastewater treatment contract with two neighboring Ottawa County communities. As a result, maintaining efficient aeration control posed a challenge for the 1.65 million gallons per day (MGD) facility. When expansion plans moved forward in 2016, the city alleviated those problems with the Xylem Sanitaire CASPERON activated sludge solution process, which eliminated the use of lime to treat waste and significantly reduced the volume of biosolid residuals.
