The City of Beaumont Wastewater Treatment Plant receives an average flow of 46 MGD at its headworks, and the variety of sources of that flow can make for unpredictable volume and debris. The headworks is fed by two 70” lines which receive flow from eighty area lift stations; also included in the flow through that line are five area prisons. It’s a challenging application, one initially made even more so by labor-intensive maintenance to the plant’s previous bar screen—and always at a time when reliability was most necessary.
