Despite the destruction of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, Duperon® wastewater screening systems in the cities of Cuero and Refugio, Texas – approximately 150 miles southwest of Houston – were virtually unaffected by the storm. Duperon’s FlexRake® bar screens, installed at both locations as well as dozens of other sites in and around Houston, remove objects like rags, paper, plastics, and metals to prevent damage and clogging of downstream treatment equipment. Both communities found essentially no damage to their wastewater screening equipment.
The City of Dixon, Illinois, located 100 miles west of Chicago, went on-line with an upgraded 4.5 MGD wastewater treatment plant in February 2002.
Oostburg’s Black River Falls facility is a lean operation with limitations in space for screening technology and in the staff resources available to manage, maintain and report on the Village’s processes. Even though space was limited, Oostburg knew that putting a headworks screening solution in place would improve their operational efficiency. Oostburg found the perfect solution using the Huber Technology RoK4 confined space vertical screen.
In 1997, back before text messaging and cell phones, Duperon Corporation installed the FlexRake® FP Full Penetration Coarse Bar Screen into its first wastewater treatment plant at the City of Adrian, Michigan.

Cherokee County, GA, conducted an extensive on-site pilot evaluation of several available process options and technologies, including various plate settler designs. Read the full case study to learn how enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) integrated design continues to deliver water quality of <0.1 mg/L Ammonia, <0.07 mg/L Phosphorus and <0.5 NTU. Not only does the WWTP consistently meet EPA direct discharge limits on BOD, Total Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Turbidity, but these final effluent values readily exceed surface water discharge permits levels.
The Coors Brewery facility in Golden, Colorado utilizes the Duperon® FlexRake® FPFS to treat the process influent resulting from their brewing operation.
“Our main priority was to find a piece of equipment that we could turn on and forget about.”
The McManis Family Vineyard is surrounded by rural land in Ripon, California. All water on-site is courtesy of the vineyard’s own well system.
Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess.
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.
