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.
What Black & Veatch does isn’t always visible to the people and communities where we work. However, to families and businesses in and around Wrexham, UK, clean, clear drinking water is readily apparent today.
Black & Veatch was chosen as the prime consultant for the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC). The project is a regional approach and cooperative effort between the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the city of San José.
With the amount of pressure required to move water through this complex system, leakage can occur, and the city’s Water Supplies Department (WSD) is taking proactive steps to prevent water loss (the volume of water that passes through the water treatment works minus all authorized consumption and use).
The area around Midland, Texas, has suffered from two years of severe drought. Midland depends on three surface reservoirs. Two of them are dry, and the third is nearly depleted. The region has already enacted water restrictions and drought contingency plans.
