Water Pollution Control Facility Upgrade

Fuss & O’Neill was hired to provide engineering services for the upgrade of the town’s Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF). Our work included a nitrogen removal study, facility plan, conceptual design, and final design for the upgrade.

Our plan recommended implementation of a four-stage Bardenpho process for nitrogen removal, and chemical phosphorus removal to meet anticipated discharge limits. We recommended the replacement of surface mechanical aerators with hyperbolic mixers, fine bubble aeration, and a dissolved oxygen control system to support nutrient removal.

Our engineers designed several facility upgrades including improvements to the plant’s instrumentation, SCADA system, electrical distribution system, and HVAC systems. The design also calls for the addition of a testing laboratory so water quality samples can be analyzed on-site.

We have also helped coordinate funding for the project, which is currently in the final phase of construction.
