Several Monster Separation Systems are scheduled for installation in two Illinois wastewater treatment plants as part of a stimulus money project early next year.
St. Charles, Illinois has two different pump stations with three existing ‘competitor’ screens. The screens are almost twenty years old, broken down and beyond repair. With the growth in their communities and broken screens, they were also challenged with wide ranges in flow rates and their associated velocities – so upgrading to screens that can handle the peak flow was extremely critical in this redesign project.
Dean Wiebenga with Peterson and Matz worked with the plant staff who contracted with the engineering firm Trotter and Associates to design the upgrade to include the JWC screening systems. Trotter and Associates applied for stimulus money in mid-Spring and received the go-ahead in mid-Summer. Meccon Industries is the contractor.
