Wilkesboro WTP

PROJECT OVERVIEW

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.
