Wastewater Treatment Plant To Be Upgraded In 2003

An upgrade to the Waupun Wastewater Treatment Plant, located at 501 Fond du Lac Street, will commence in March. Construction is necessary to meet new Department of Natural Resources requirements going into effect. The DNR requirements were created to further improve water quality in the Rock River and downstream marshes and lakes.

The 20-year-old facility will be completely reused in the upgrade process. The list of improvements includes:

  • fine screening

  • bio-tower ventilation

  • solids digestion

  • solids dewatering system

EarthTech, Inc. is the Design Engineer of the 4.7 million-dollar project. C.D. Smith, General Contractor of the project, is responsible for the yearlong construction and improvements at the wastewater facility.
