Mayor Marti Shamberger and other local officials today celebrated the commitment of the Morgantown Utility Board to address the present and future wastewater treatment needs of the greater Morgantown community at a groundbreaking ceremony for improvements at the Star City Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The improvements at the facility include Evoqua Water Technologies’ Memcor MemPulse® MBR System which was pre-selected for its reduced footprint, operational simplicity, and ability to deliver consistent, high quality effluent. The $5.8 million project will include five Memcor MBR cells to treat 12.8 million gallons per day at peak flow of wastewater.
The design of the MemPulse® MBR System was a key factor in selecting Evoqua for this project as the city needed to increase capacity in the existing footprint and allow for future expansions. The unique space-saving, modular design of the system allows for more productivity in a smaller footprint. As a result, the city will be able to expand further in the future to treat a total of 20 MGD in the existing plant footprint, based upon its growth needs.
