Pump Station’s Non-Dispersibles Problem: Solved

Sun City, AZ, has had the same wastewater treatment plant since the '70s, along with a new, expensive problem: non-dispersible waste. Disposable baby wipes, personal hygiene products, and disinfectant wipes account for $12B in annual consumer sales worldwide. They’re convenient, strong, and effective, but they don’t decompose in the wastewater stream. “Cleaning the old lift station screen from debris was very awkward and unsafe. We were looking for a solution that was cost-effective, and would fit into our narrow and deep existing pump station.” Read the full case study to learn how Aqualitec helped to solve this problem.
