Topics so far:
Dewatering Optimization – Practical Ways to Improve Performance, Adam from HDR
  • Focus on practical solutions to increase dewatering performance including drier cake solids, better solids capture, reduced polymer consumption, and reduced O&M costs for dewatering processes. The information will provide municipal attendees the knowledge and resources to better perform their jobs with lower O&M costs, consultants to provide more informative and better dewatering equipment advice, and manufacturers to provide better and more optimum machine performance at lower O&M costs.
Dave Oerke from Jacobs speaking about a recent and local case study on “Achieving Cost Savings by Using Innovative Approaches to Retrofit Existing Facilities”.
  • Jacobs Engineering was selected by the South Fort Collins Sanitation District (District) to prepare design documents for expanding their Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) from 4.5 to 6 MGD and add new nutrient removal and solids processing facilities. The new facilities included chemical phosphorus removal facilities, step-feed aeration basins, UV disinfection, aeration blower building, secondary clarifier, rotary drum thickening, autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion (ATAD), ATAD building, odor control facilities, numerous sludge pumps, yard piping, and miscellaneous mechanical and electrical equipment.

    Jacobs optimized the utilization of existing assets by converting of existing interchange tanks to pre-thickening tanks, reused of existing aerobic digestion tanks for ATAD tanks, and installed rotary drum thickeners in an existing versus new building that saved approximately $4,000,000. A unique design approach to add ferric chloride at the upstream Ptarmigan Pump Station to control force main corrosion and odors and provide chemical phosphorous removal at the WRF, resulted in an additional capital cost savings of $800,000 by eliminating the ferric chloride addition facility at the WRF.

    The presentation will highlight the strong collaboration of the District, Jacobs and Hydro Construction project construction team staffs. The construction of the $35 Million project started in late 2018, is approximately 50% complete and it is on time and under budget
