This pulp and paper mill in Wisconsin needed residuals removed from a large wastewater lagoon. The previous method of mechanical excavation was proving inefficient and alternate methods were being investigated. WaterSolve, LLC was awarded the contract to remove the solids. Using Geotube® containers, chemicals, chemical feed equipment, and manpower, provided by WaterSolve, LLC, the results exceeded expectation.
WaterSolve, LLC’s local agent from Clearwater Dewatering was responsible for this project at a pulp and paper manufacturer who wanted to use Geotube® containers when their normal operations were interrupted due to a system shutdown.
This Idaho lumber mill had cattails beginning to form on the site’s settling pond and had to find a way to remove solids to retrieve space for the future. Geotube Containers® were selected because labor on site could operate the system and they could remove solids incrementally every year to restore the space without a huge burden to the budget, and they could choose when they had time to do the pumping.
