The Sulphur Springs City Council voted unanimously to contract with Garver Engineering for design and other services for improvements and rehab to the city’s 1970’s model Wastewater Treatment Plant. City Manager Marc Maxwell said three new basins would be built but that these would be more efficient and effective. He praised the engineering firm for their work in digging into the problem to find a solution. The cost of the project is $18-million.
Oxygenation and microbacterial organisms that consume the solids in the mix are the primary workers in treating the waste water. With more basins, the oxygen content will be increased.
