Over the years, our technical directors have adopted a simple approach to technical challenges. We create designs and plans with sound science and practical engineering that are easily implemented by our clients. We are leaders in providing technical expertise and innovative technology that offers a leap forward from traditional approaches.
Whether it involves design drawings for a new landfill, remediation system designs, diffuser design, or conceptual designs for wastewater treatment upgrades, we work as an extension of our clients’ organizations and provide cost-effective engineering solutions for the design-life of the equipment.
Alternative Final Cover Design
AquAeTer was a participant (along with State and Federal regulators and industry representatives) in the Interstate Technology Regulatory Council (ITRC) Alternate Landfill Technologies team that developed guidance documents and provided training, encouraging the design and approval of innovative alternative final covers (AFCs) for landfills. AFCs that support vegetation and promote evapotranspiration offer potential performance improvements […]
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 […]
AquAeTer was retained by HOVENSA, a joint venture between Amerada Hess and Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA), to conduct a design review of a proposed new activated sludge facility. HOVENSA operates a world-class merchant refinery in St Croix, USVI. The facility is one of the most modern refineries in the United States and, with crude […]
AquAeTer was retained by this client to prepare the landfill design and specifications for a new 1.5 million CY hazardous waste disposal cell, and to prepare the design and specifications for the final cover for Cells #11 and 12. The new cell was designed, permitted, constructed, and approved for waste disposal by NV DEP within […]
AquAeTer performed a feasibility study to evaluate options for neutralization of acidic groundwater at a former manufacturing site. Our study included evaluation of a traditional limestone barrier wall and our proposal of an innovative liquid alkaline injection system. This study resulted in AquAeTer recommending a sodium bicarbonate injection, which was subsequently approved by the state. […]
