Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc - the leader in developing and manufacturing advanced pile cloth media filtration technology has partnered with San Antonio Water Systems (SAWS) on two wastewater treatment plant expansions that will replace aged, traveling bridge sand filters with new more efficient pile cloth media filter technology.
Ten AquaDiamond® pile cloth media filters will be installed at the Dos Rios plant increasing the average capacity from 50 million gallons/day (MGD) to 120 MGD. Three additional AquaDiamond® filters will also be installed at the Leon Creek plant increasing its average capacity from 15 MGD to 36 MGD.
The AquaDiamond® filters at both plants are scheduled to be operational by the 4th quarter of 2010. This project is one of the largest wastewater filtration projects in Texas. The project solution is a collaboration between Aqua-Aerobic Systems, CP&Y, Inc. (San Antonio, TX) consulting engineers and construction by Pepper Lawson Construction (Houston, TX).
An official project award was presented to Aqua-Aerobic Systems' at the Pepper Lawson's corporate office in Houston with local Aqua-Aerobic representative, Hartwell Environmental also in attendance.
Aqua-Aerobic Systems is pleased to have partnered with the City of San Antonio and is proud to have the opportunity to serve this region with a robust, high efficiency, low energy wastewater filtration system. This technology will provide exceptional treatment for the communities it serves with the ability for future expansion at the lowest cost of ownership over the life of these plants.
