New Castle Wastewater Treatment Plant
2010 Project: The project included various improvements to the 16 MGD Treatment Facility. The existing secondary 105’ diameter primary clarifiers and 120’ diameter clarifiers were evaluated and improvements made to correct hydraulic loading issues, the tertiary filters were rehabilitated and converted to monomedia high-rate filters and a new sodium hypochorite / sodium bisulfite disinfection system with new building was included. The improvements allow for the higher wet weather flow treatment included in the City’s approved CSO Long Term Control Plan also prepared by United Consulting.
