As the cost of and demand for potable water increases, engineers, planners, and utilities need reliable, innovative methods for protecting this valuable resource. Cost-effective and environmentally sustainable wastewater collection and treatment systems are vital components in the water cycle and therefore require careful analysis. While there is no single solution for every site or community, traditional ‘big-pipe’ systems are rarely appropriate in sensitive environments; fortunately, today there are more options than ever to consider.
Residents of Christiansburg, Ohio, already knew they had a problem with their onsite wastewater systems. System failures and odors were common, particularly during or shortly after significant rainfall.
On the island nation of Cyprus, the Water Development Department needed a wastewater treatment system for an immigration processing center that was in the planning stages.
Located in rural New Zealand, the farming community of Piopio was in need of a wastewater treatment system.
Public concern was mounting over the lack of adequate wastewater treatment for the vast majority of homes in Fulton, Alabama. High groundwater levels contributed to septic system failures at some residences, while many others had no septic system at all.
The Huber Technology Strainpress has helped Napa Sanitation District maximize its investment in the FOG receiving and injection system by improving operations, ensuring the protection of downstream components and enhancing the production of a valuable, revenue generating asset.
Fort Worth Village Creek has gone far beyond managing its scum. The plant has implemented an efficient way to continuously skim the scum out of the channel flow and effectively process it through anaerobic co-digestion so that its resulting methane gas is useable. In short, the liability was turned into an asset.
In a recent retrofit replacing a belt filter press with a Huber Q-Press®, the plant operations staff at Robinson WWTP leveraged the technology’s greatly improved dewatering performance to solve their sludge storage and distribution strategies. As result they are able to radically improve both operations and reduce costs.
The first Santa Claus Club in the United States was formed in 1946 by World War II veterans to provide gifts for critically ill children in the village of Valatie, New York. It has since grown to the point that on Christmas Eve, a Santa visits every child in the village below the age of 10 and gives him a gift.
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.
Solar dryers are fully automated to feed, move, and discharge biosolids cost-effectively. Even climate changes throughout the year are easily monitored and controlled to produce optimal output. Installation is very flexible with options to add components at a later date. Full automation means employees seldom need to enter the greenhouse and are free to use their time elsewhere.
The City of Tooele, UT was looking to update their Bio-Solids program and move away from a limiting Class B product. They needed to produce a more flexible reusable material. The City found the Huber Technology SOLSTICE® to be the perfect solution and was pleased to discover the technology to be simple to maintain as well as provide a cost-effective operation. Find out how the dryer raised the quality of the bio-product to Class A.
