Headworks International Bar Screens Handle Over 6 Billion Gallons Per Day In Detroit

In 2004, Headworks Inc. was selected to supply 22 screens to the George W. Kuhn Retention Treatment Basin (“GWK RT Basin”) located in the Detroit Metropolitan Area of Michigan.  This was the largest screening contract ever awarded in the wastewater industry and even now remains one of the largest water screening facilities in the world. The original facility known as Twelve Towns was built in 1972, but by the early 1990s, it could no longer meet the more stringent environmental regulations.  The expansion of the retention basis was required.
