Design and Start-Up

AquAeTer was retained to evaluate the existing system that was not meeting compliance and prepare the design and specifications to upgrade the system. The project was conceived, designed, constructed, and initiated within a 12-month period. AquAeTer provided construction and start-up oversight for the system upgrade which included the installation of a “mixed media” package biological treatment system, which increased overall treatment system retention time by two days. Treatment performance has been excellent based on meeting compliance requirements including phenol removal targets.
