Wilkesboro WTP


Modifications to the sedimentation basins and sludge facilities were completed at the operating treatment facility in Wilkesboro, NC. Harper took an innovative approach to the project by constructing a temporary backwash lagoon on site to avoid interruption of regular sludge removal, as well as costly bypass and other options. This approach saved the Owner $75,000 and did not result in any loss of operation or capacity at the plant. During course of construction, the project team was issued a significant change order to complete upgrades to the screw press at the Wilkesboro Waste Water Treatment Plant.
