Springville Composting Facility

Client Springville City

Completed 1999

This composting facility started up in the summer of 1999. AQUA Engineering assisted the City by designing the composting pad, staging area, loading ramps, and drainage system. In addition, AQUA Engineering had previously designed the solids dewatering facility. The City uses green waste collected at this site to mix in with their dewatered anaerobic sludge. Windrows are created with front end loaders and are about ten feet tall. Odors from the operation are very minimal which is not uncommon when anaerobic sludge is composted.  Green waste is ground up several times a year by a tub grinder that is owned jointly by several southern Utah communities. In addition, the screening is also accomplished using a jointly owned trammel screen.
