Black & Veatch's Engineering Experts Design Hong Kong's Award-Winning “Mountain Cavern” Reservoir
Black & Veatch's Engineering Experts Design Hong Kong's Award-Winning “Mountain Cavern” Reservoir
Publish date:
The mountain looming over Hong Kong is named Lung Fu Shan, which in Cantonese means Mountain of Dragon and Tiger. The University of Hong Kong (HKU) sits astride the mountain, and to celebrate its centennial, a building expansion was planned with a tight design and construction program. But the space on the mountain is precious, and old underground waterworks facilities took up part of it. 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.
Innovative Membrane Bio-reactor Treatment Selected for Fast-Track Wastewater Treatment Plant
Innovative Membrane Bio-reactor Treatment Selected for Fast-Track Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades Using a Design-Build Approach
Publish date:
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) requires all wastewater treatment plants in the state to meet limits for bacteria (E. coli) in their effluent. Industrial WWTPs are no exception. BioKyowa, in Cape Girardeau, produces a line of amino acid products that generate a highly variable amount of high-strength wastewater. While the plant does not treat human waste, it does experience a form of E. coli bacteria as a byproduct of the manufacturing process.
