Wastewater Treatment System Design
Confidential Client, CA
Our client was experiencing compliance problems with the discharge from its wastewater pretreatment system. Woodard & Curran was retained to conduct a series of bench- and pilot-scale testing of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) and advanced oxidation technology (AOT). Using the test results, Woodard & Curran engineers designed a full-scale treatment system, provided construction oversight services, and assisted in startup and operator training. The plant has not experienced any discharge violations since it came on line.
Wastewater Treatment Design/Build
Confidential Manufacturing Client
Our client's manufacturing facility in Thailand experienced rapid production increases for which the on-site wastewater treatment facility could only handle a portion of the wastewater, with the remainder being shipped off-site at great expense. Woodard & Curran was retained to provide preliminary engineering design services to determine how to best expand the treatment plant on a very limited site. Woodard & Curran then teamed with a Thai contractor to implement the proposed expansion on a design-build basis. The expanded facility is now successfully treating all of the manufacturing wastewater.
Odor Control System Design/Installation
Confidential Food Industry Client
Our client's production facility in Maine was experiencing odor complaints from neighbors because of fumes from fryers. After successful pilot testing of a packed tower scrubber, Woodard & Curran designed and oversaw the installation of the full-scale odor control system. Since the scrubber was installed, the facility has received no complaints.
Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion
Confidential Health Care Client
Our client needed to expand its existing wastewater treatment plant to meet production increases at its pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Missouri. Woodard & Curran was retained to design a new steam distillation column to remove regulated solvents from the wastewater, and the new facility is now under construction.
