Designed automatic vacuum sludge collection system for existing sedimentation basins, new mixing system in the existing sludge holding tank, replacement of existing sludge drying beds with a new centrifuge, conveyor system, and truck loading building

Converted existing sludge drying bed areas into enclosed storage for future use

Outcome

Davis & Floyd recommended and designed upgrades to the Town's 10-MGD water treatment plant.
