Oakley, UT – MBR Wastewater Treatment Facility
AQUA Engineering was contracted by Oakley City to design and build the first MBR (Membrane Bio-Reactor) facility in Utah. The facility can treat 200,000 gallons per day using the Zenon Zeeweed hollow fiber membrane system. Other treatment technologies included the main pump station, headworks fine screening, anoxic basins, aeration basins, membrane tanks, UV disinfection, a small belt press for dewatering, full laboratory, electrical controls, and a full SCADA system for remote monitoring and operations. All of this was inside of a simple, barn-like building that blended into the surrounding area. Most residents have no idea that a treatment plant is in their neighborhood.
This project received the 2005 ACEC Grand Award for Engineering Excellence.
