This organic dairy farm in Oregon needed to capture the nutrients prior to irrigating the manure wastewater onto the farmland near the milking facility. A pilot study was performed using a Geotube® container to capture the solids and filter the wastewater. Lab studies at WaterSolve, LLC revealed a dual polymer treatment of a coagulant followed by a flocculent was necessary to chemically treat the water. The study was performed in the winter of 2009. WaterSolve personnel were on hand to train the site manager on the polymer injection and management of the Geotube®.

This large food processing organization was looking to dewater biosolids which are generated through one of their washing processes. A pilot study was performed using a Geotube® container to capture the solids and filter the wastewater. Lab studies at WaterSolve, LLC determined the most efficient chemical to treat the material. The study was performed in the winter of 2009.

A California winery was looking for a cost effective way to clean out their waste pond.

WaterSolve was contracted to assist a California winery with dewatering their ponds. Approximately 1,158 cy of sludge was removed using the recommended polymer and the Geotube® Dewatering Containers.
