COLLECTION SYSTEMS RESOURCES

  • Reducing H2S And FOG At The Discharge Of A Force Main

    Beginning early in 2019 our office began receiving complaints of sewer odor in the neighborhood of Fountain Ridge Section III (FR III), located in Prince George County VA. The County Operations staff investigated the wastewater collection system that serves the neighborhood, and found that odor was proliferating throughout the neighborhood. Corrosion of the sewer manholes was clearly evident.

  • Tanks Evolve To Meet Wastewater Treatment, Water Reuse Demand

    From simple to advanced and from sewage to potable, tanks have become the Swiss Army knives of water management.

  • Supporting Innovations To Reduce Nitrogen Pollution From Septic Systems

    Septic systems are common in coastal marine communities on the East Coast of the United States. Septic systems consist of subsurface wastewater treatment structure and use a combination of natural processes and technology to treat residential sanitary waste and greywater from bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry. Partially cleaned wastewater is discharged from septic tanks into drain fields, where the water is further treated through biological processes as it travels through gravel, soil, and can eventually reach groundwater. Groundwater linkages with surface waters can then transport any nutrients and contaminants that are present in discharge directly into coastal waters.

  • Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Approaches Solve Community Challenges

    Decentralized systems are proving their value beyond traditional use in rural settings, treating larger volumes of wastewater in diverse applications while easing O&M concerns.

  • Custom Solutions For Reuse Applications

    As supplies of fresh water become increasingly scarce, methods of recycling and reusing this vital resource are getting more attention than ever before. Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems consistently produce clear effluent that meets the most stringent permit limits. This effluent is suitable for a variety of reuse applications (governed by local regulations) including irrigation, toilet flushing, industrial cooling, and car washing. With a 15-year track record, the AdvanTex textile filter is a proven technology that not only treats greywater to reuse levels, but is also ideal for treating residential or commercial wastewater.

  • An Affordable Greywater Treatment And Reuse Solution For Commercial Properties

    The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) wanted an environmentally friendly method for disposing of the greywater generated by the 336 shower buildings at their showcase camping and training facility, the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve (SBR) in West Virginia. The chosen technology would need to be energy-effi cient and take up as little space as possible.

  • Liquid-Only Sewers Offer A Cost-Effective Solution

    Liquid-only sewers (also known as “effluent sewers”) have proven to be a cost-effective solution for municipalities, new subdivisions, and a variety of other areas in need of sewer. As opposed to the big pipes and deep excavations typically required by gravity sewers, liquid-only sewers use small-diameter, shallowly buried mainlines that follow the contour of the land and are easily installed with light-duty equipment, minimizing disturbance to the surrounding area.

  • Onsite STEP System Handles Seasonal Peaks At U.S. National Park

    In 2017, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in California was the second most visited place in the entire U.S. national park system, with almost fifteen million visitors. Established in 1972, it’s also one of the largest national parks located in an urban area, offering a wide variety of activities – from touring Alcatraz Island to hiking Montara Mountain to swimming at Stinson Beach.

  • Xylem Engages In Award-Winning Rehab And Bypass Project With North Carolina Utility

    The Cape Fear Public Utility Authority (CFPUA) in North Carolina engaged in a capital improvement project to help address their aging infrastructure.

  • Flood Event Prompts Portable Back-Up Pump Solution For Potable Water Network

    The Southern Iowa Rural Water Association (SIRWA) provides quality drinking water to the residents and communities of southwest Iowa. Included in its 4,000 miles of pipeline is a 16-mile, 12-inch line that runs from the city of Creston to Corning.

WASTEWATER COLLECTION SYSTEMS SOLUTIONS

  • Aqua Caiman® Vertical

    The Aqua Caiman® Vertical screen allows our proven in-channel articulating rake screen to be used in locations requiring very steep or vertical mounting, or where additional rake engagement force for removing solids from the bar rack is desired. This mounting option can benefit clients with tight channel requirements in new or existing locations.

  • Aqua Caiman®HD

    The Aqua Caiman® HD screen is designed for larger in-channel installations requiring the handling of high flows or heavy solids. It incorporates the proven features and benefits of the original Aqua Caiman® articulating rake screen, but is larger, heavier and made for the toughest applications that require jam-free operation, low maintenance and low headloss.

  • Prelos: Pressurized Liquid-Only Sewer

    The Modern Sewer Solution
    Prelos is the answer for community sewer, offering low life-cycle and initial capital costs and enabling more cost-effective wastewater treatment. This technology is based on nearly four decades of proven sewer solutions.

  • Water Reuse Is No Longer A Choice. It’s A Necessity.

    AdvanTex® AX-Greywater is the solution.

    Wastewater Treatment & Reuse

    Water reuse is no longer a choice. It’s a necessity. As supplies of fresh water become increasingly scarce, methods of recycling and reusing this vital resource are getting more attention than ever before. Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems consistently produce clear effluent that meets the most stringent permit limits. This effluent is suitable for a variety of reuse applications (governed by local regulations) including irrigation, toilet flushing, industrial cooling, and car washing. With a 15-year track record, the AdvanTex textile filters are a proven technology that not only treats greywater to reuse levels, but is also ideal for treating residential or commercial wastewater.

    Wastewater treatment systems designed for reuse applications need to meet permit limits specific to their particular city, county, or state. Orenco’s AdvanTex® Treatment Systems use a multi-pass, packed-bed filter technology that’s ideal for handling highly variable flows and is also inherently more stable than suspended-growth, activated-sludge systems. A more stable process means greater reliability, lower operation and maintenance requirements, and greater confidence in meeting permit limits.

  • Nitrogen-Reduction Treatment Systems For Long-Term Operations

    The need for of nitrogen-reducing wastewater treatment systems has become more common in the past few decades due to various environmental concerns, including eutrophication, oxygen depletion, and toxicity to aquatic organisms in lakes and streams. The addition of nitrogen removal to any wastewater treatment plant, new or existing, typically increases the costs of the project significantly. When evaluating suitable technologies, it becomes critical to properly identify processes that can not only proved the best upfront capital value but also provide the most sustainable long-term functionality.
