Previously the crew at Payson WWTP wrestled with clogs that required constant attention and increased system downtimes. With the installation of the new headworks, the comparison was stark because suddenly the flow from the headworks was debris-free. The new headworks was producing a clean flow and clean solids. The key for the Payson crew was protecting their sludge pumps. Plugged up sludge pumps easily consumed his team’s time and caused considerable frustration on a consistent basis with the older installation. With the STEPSCREEN® implementation, no pumps became plugged. It was clear that the headworks technology was not just meeting but surpassing expectations.
