Atlantic County Utilities Authority
CITY ISLAND WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PLANT ACTIVATED SLUDGE PLANT IMPROVEMENTS
D&B/Guarino was retained by the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) to provide professional engineering services for four separate improvement projects at the 40 MGD wastewater treatment facility:
- Replacement of two existing plant water pumps and motor sets with three new pumps and motor sets, pipe modifications and related electrical and control systems.
- Abandonment and removal of two underground steel fuel oil storage tanks to be replaced with new, aboveground concrete fuel oil storage tanks and spill containment.
- Installation of new 12-inch diameter fiberglass duct and plenum with louvers to connect existing odor control fans to the “B” incinerator combustion air fan intake.
- Replacement of the existing piping and select buried process valves around the plant.
The facility treats the wastewater of 14 municipalities within Atlantic County, as well as the sludge and septage generated throughout the county. Incoming wastewater is collected using over 60 miles of force main that discharges into the facility and the clean effluent wastewater is then discharged to the Atlantic Ocean via an ocean outfall pipe and diffuser system.
