WHAT's New In Wastewater:

This month, the Wastewater Department lead a repair to a 24 inch sewer main that was found damaged while working with contractors on the Liberty Plaza project. Additionally, the team partnered with a local company and oversaw the installation of a new manhole along North Ellsworth Road in support of the growing plaza project. The department has taken advantage of the warm weather and continued to locate and identify underground sewer lines and manholes to improve our utility mapping efforts.

Design for a single Wastewater Plant to serve two communities…

The City of Box Elder and the Ellsworth Air Force Base were each operating their wastewater treatment facilities at capacity and had to satisfy more stringent effluent limits for ammonia. Both entities needed wastewater treatment facility upgrades. And they needed to find the most cost-effective way to do it.  A new wastewater plant was designed to satisfy the regulatory requirements and future growth accommodations for both the City and the Air Force Base. The single wastewater treatment plant serving both the City and the Base resulted in a $10 million savings over creating single plants for each.
