The WWETCO FlexFilter™ from WesTech Engineering received a huge vote of confidence this fall when the State of New Jersey released a report highly rating its performance for the satellite treatment of combined sewer overflows (CSOs).
Q&A with Mark Boner, Creator of the FlexFilter™ Technology
Q: What trends do you see in the design and construction of wastewater collection and/or treatment systems?
A: More stringent treatment requirements are being imposed by the regulatory community. Two major issues driving these mandates include the control and treatment of wet weather flow, and nutrient removal.
The City of Springfield, Ohio, recently opened its 100 MGD enhanced high-rate treatment facility, designed to treat and disinfect combined high-volume stormwater and wastewater flows generated by wet-weather conditions. Utilizing EPA-documented Compressible Media Filtration technology – WWETCO FlexFilter™ from WesTech – the system can also provide tertiary filtration and disinfection during normal dry-weather conditions, demonstrating its functionality as a dual-use technology.
