GE Booth Wastewater Treatment Plant – New Plant

The new plant design optimizes the land use of an existing constrained site while maximizing overall treatment capacity, reducing energy consumption, and simplifying the long-term operations and maintenance of the facility.

The G.E. Booth Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) liquid train is comprised of three  parallel conventional activated sludge plants that together provide a rated capacity of 518 ML/d. CIMA+ was tasked with the replacement of one of the aging  facilities with a new plant that optimizes land use, maximizes overall treatment capacity, reduces energy consumption, and simplifies long-term operations and maintenance. To ensure the plant maintained its treatment capacity throughout construction, the new infrastructure was built entirely off-line while the existing plant remained operational. Construction staging was carefully defined to allow efficient construction delivery. Significant schedule coordination was required in order to avoid conflicts between several contracts being simultaneously carried out on the site, minimize delays, and ensure smooth delivery of the project. The new facility was also designed to simplify the addition of developing technologies in the future, including: membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) and granular aerobic sludge.
