About the Projects

Modification of previous CIP project E-15 of 2014-2023. This project was included in the prior CIP at $6.2 million. The change in budget is due to a modification to the project’s scope , resulting in a cost reduction of $4.2 million.

The two existing Wastewater Treatment Plant digesters were constructed in 1987. A third digester was previously believed to be required to allow periodic maintenance. Implementation of new technology will allow more efficient use of the existing digester capacity and eliminate the need for a third digester.

This project will implement additional biosolids dewatering equipment and upgrade existing biosolids digester process control.
