Black & Veatch designed and built the world’s largest nutrient recovery facility at the Stickney WRP. The plant is providing an environmentally progressive solution to support the larger goal of reducing Gulf hypoxia.
The Charnock Well Field was the location of five of the main groundwater wells used to supply drinking water to Santa Monica. Three of these wells were contaminated and required treatment to remove volatile organic compounds from the groundwater.
When the construction of New York City Water Tunnel No. 3 is complete in 2020, more than 60 miles of new tunnel will enhance and improve the city’s drinking water delivery system. It is the largest capital construction project in New York City’s history.
Thames Water appointed Black & Veatch to design, construct and commission the first commercially viable membrane bioreactor reclaimed wastewater facility in the UK. It will service a new sporting facility in London.
BioKyowa was faced with a completion timeline of only 18 months when new limits were required of its WWTP. Black & Veatch selected an innovative, state-of-the-art application of membrane bio-reactor (MBR) treatment for removal of E. coli bacteria.
South East Queensland was caught in the grip of a severe continent-wide drought and faced stringent water restrictions. Combined dam levels were low, and water supplies were dwindling. Supply to two nearby power stations was threatened.
The Jurong Water Reclamation Plant is strategically located near major industry sites on Jurong Island – a petrochemical and industrial hub. Black & Veatch had a clear appreciation of PUB’s project objectives, and leveraged global expertise to explore alternative solutions.
The Water Supplies Department (WSD), Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, was searching for a way to assist HKU in its goal to expand without disturbing the existing slopes. The sustainable solution involved the design, construction and commissioning of two freshwater service reservoirs and two saltwater service reservoirs.
The Escondida Water Supply project (EWS) in Chile will provide water to support the expansion of mineral production at the world’s largest copper mine. Black & Veatch is leading the engineering,design, procurement, field inspection and pre-commissioning for the marine works and desalination elements of the project.
The Butler Drive Water Reclamation Facility incorporates advanced membrane bioreactor technology in its design and allows the city to reclaim its wastewater as a renewable water supply via aquifer recharge or direct reuse. This helps to secure future water resources needed for city growth.
Westar Energy (Westar) upgraded its air quality control (AQC) systems at its Lawrence Energy Center Units 4 and 5 in Lawrence, Kansas, to continue to meet federal air quality standards. The complex retrofit project included the addition of pulse jet fabric filters for particulate control, scrubber and ductwork modifications, and electrical system upgrades for both units.
