#252 Wastewater Treatment Plant Digester Emergency

Two digesters developed leaks at this wastewater treatment plant in Idaho. The biosolids were pumped to the storage pond and solids floated to the surface causing odors that drifted to the city. WaterSolve, LLC was called in to use Geotextile tube containers to dewater the scum layer as it was pumped off the surface of the pond. Facility managers were so pleased with the process they are now using this technology as a standard practice to dewater the biosolids before hauling them to the farmland.
