Evoqua Water Technologies has been selected by Carolina Water Service, Inc. of North Carolina, through its sales partner Premier Water, to design, manufacture and install a new wastewater treatment system located in the gated golf course community of Connestee Falls, N.C. The plant was designed to be sustainable, with a focus on increasing the plant's efficiency and extending its useful life.
The wastewater treatment system will feature a stainless steel OMNIPAC® sequencing batch reactor (SBR) field-erected system and will treat 0.54 million gallons per day, replacing an existing concrete-basin design system that is nearing the end of its useful life. Evoqua, along with Land Design Engineers of North Carolina, provided a thorough evaluation of the existing facility and recommended the best option for a long-life wastewater treatment solution.
Land Design Engineers worked closely with Evoqua to provide the engineering and design. Evoqua's field service team was the general contractor for this project, supplying materials and installation services.
"As a water and wastewater treatment provider, Evoqua is committed to developing and providing more sustainable options to our customers," stated Marc Roehl, Vice President and General Manager with Evoqua's Wastewater Technologies Division "When Carolina Water Service, Inc. of N.C. approached us about finding a way to extend the life of the Connestee Falls plant, we were excited to collaborate on a project that not only allowed us to optimize the plant's operations, but also contribute to increasing the amount of sustainable infrastructure in the state of North Carolina."
Commissioning of the plant was in late 2019.
