Kearney, MO, Wipes Up Treatment Trouble With Brushless Screening


Located northeast of Kansas City, MO, Kearney is a small city of about 10,000 people. In 2014, the treatment plant upgraded from sequencing batch reactors to a biological nutrient removal (BNR) system. While the new system was a huge improvement, operators were still experiencing a lot of challenges. Most prominent among them was inadequate headworks screens performance, which created failures downstream.

The old coarse bar screen was letting too much debris through. Thankfully, as part of a 20-year plan, the WWTP was scheduled to upgrade its headworks. This gave the chief operator, Mike Fort, the chance to explore finer screening options. Their journey brought them to JWC Environmental, where they discovered the Brushless Finescreen Monster. This allowed Fort to upgrade to finer screening without the additional labor and cost associated with changing brushes.
