WWTF Ultraviolet Disinfection Improvements
The Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection Improvements project consists of the replacement of aging UV disinfection equipment nearing the end of its useful life at the City's Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF). UV disinfection is the final stage of the treatment process where wastewater is disinfected before being discharged into Mud Creek. The project will consist of an additional concrete disinfection channel and new UV equipment to provide redundancy and additional capacity within this stage of the treatment process. In addition, the newer UV equipment is much more energy-efficient, saving the City an estimated $70,000 per year through reduced electrical costs at the WWTF.
