Recycled Water Plant Biosolids Dredging

Regional water facility and treatment plant.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: S 19.0
ESTIMATED COST: $300,000 (total reserve deposits)
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • Includes permitting, dredging, dewatering, and hauling biosolids to a disposal facility
  • Pre-dredge survey will determine volume of solids in the pond, chemical testing, and development of bid documents
  • Contractor will be paid based on volume of solids removed

WHY IT’S NEEDED

Biosolids handling equipment installed in 2018 reduces the total volume of suspended solids, but doesn’t eliminate it. Removal is needed every 20 years, and ongoing deposits will pay for that work.

PROJECT STATUS:
In Progress
PROJECT MILESTONES

Annual investment of $50,000 toward dredging project.
