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.
During periods of heavy rainfall, storm water flows affected the quality of the town’s coastal waters. Previous work at Campbeltown Wastewater Treatment Works (WwTW) has failed to address the area’s long-standing sewerage and flooding issues.
The Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) faced complex challenges. These included addressing wastewater treatment, increasing feedwater supply and being mindful of the importance of its Groundwater Replenishment System (GWRS), which is jointly owned and operated by the Orange County Water District.
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).
