Bath Borough Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades

Northampton County, PA

The Bath Borough Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion was designed to replace a 50+ year old plant and meet the anticipated increase of stringent effluent limits.

The facility includes automated screening, grit removal and ultraviolet disinfection for the process flow prior to discharge to the stream at the location of the existing plant. Space is also included for installation of tertiary filters between the SBRs and the digesters for future use if necessary. Sludge handling is accomplished by aerobic digestion and a rotary press. Dewatered sludge is continuing to be hauled to an approved landfill.

This new facility decreases operations cost by reducing the labor and capital costs for the repair and/or replacement of the aging equipment. In addition, the plant provides updated technology to ensure the treatment plant is compliant with their effluent permit limits.

In general, the design elements consist of Civil/Site, Precast Structures, Structural, Electrical and HVAC.
