Our team also brings extensive experience in many advanced process options, including biological aerated filters, membrane bioreactor, moving bed biofilm reactor and integrated fixed-film activated sludge. Our technical specialists deliver planning and development support, as well as stand-alone projects, and we undertake design-build delivery including the program management, construction, procurement, installation and commissioning of new or upgraded treatment facilities. We also supply standard components for the water and wastewater industry serving customers worldwide. An inevitable part of the wastewater process is dealing with biosolids management, which can be a complex, costly problem for utilities. Black & Veatch has been on the forefront of biosolids management, from public review of regulations through the design and construction of a wide range of treatment facilities. Because our experience includes all types of thickening, dewatering, stabilization, storage and air permitting technologies, as well as final use and disposal strategies, including cogeneration and combined heat and power, we can tailor an advanced biosolids solution to meet your needs Featured Projects Phosphorus Recovery System at Stickney Water Reclamation Plant BioKyowa Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades Mogden Sewage Treatment Works Upgrade PRASA Program Management Eastern Treatment Plant Tertiary Upgrade Orange County Sanitation District Secondary Activated Sludge Facility 2 at Plant No. 1 Campbeltown Wastewater Treatment Works Shared Media WaterWorld The Drop: The Maturation of Nutrient Recovery Technology As nutrient recovery evolves, so do technology offerings and recovery options.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
