Boulder Wastewater Plant Offers Tour to Other Wastewater Utilities and Comes One Step Closer to Completion
Denver, CO - June 12, 2008 - The newly expanded 75th Street Boulder Wastewater Treatment Plant is nearly complete, and offers the residents of Boulder an improved and expanded facility that further minimizes its environmental impact. The new design is intended to expand the facility's useful life, resolve capacity issues, upgrade the facilities, and result in a lower volume of solids to transport / process. The City of Boulder will benefit from lowered transportation costs and lessened traffic, which will be better for the environment. The new solids handling and dewatering facilities, centrate storage, and odor control facilities were designed by engineers from Rothberg, Tamburini & Winsor, Inc. (RTW).
The RMWEA (Rocky Mountain Section- American Water Works Association) Joint Technical Activities Committee (JTAC) will host a tour of the Wastewater Treatment Plant on Thursday, June 12th. RTW as well as City employees will be on site during the tour to give a summary of how the new solids facility operates. Brown and Caldwell (B&C) will also be onsite to demonstrate the unique teaming of the two local engineering firms. B&C was responsible for the design of the new liquid treatment facilities. Construction of the facility is not 100% complete, however the liquid and solids handling facilities are operating as planned.
