Based on the study performed by Sunrise to determine the best solutions to address issues within the Town's existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), a Biolac BNR system was selected and Sunrise was awarded the civil engineering and surveying contract to design the improvements.
The project included a flow equalization tank, lift station, Bio P zone (enhanced nutrient removal), Biolac BNR system, clarifiers, and sludge thickener. The existing headworks, filter, UV, and dewatering unit were incorporated into the new plant design. A significant Aquifer Protection Permit (APP) amendment was also completed. The new plant capacity is 0.7 MGD and was designed and constructed to allow the existing plant to stay operational during construction.
