Weak Sewage Comminutor Couldn’t Cut Through Tough Concert Sewage

Sewage Comminutor Can’t Keep up with the Crowds at Red Rocks

Red Rocks Amphitheater  is part of the scenic Red Rocks Park District in Morrison, Colorado.  Every year the awe inspiring outdoor venue plays host to world star-studded performances and the thousand of guest that flock to the site.  With  natural acoustics and beauty to brag about – the last thing anyone wanted to worry about was a sewage comminutor.  Unfortanely this was exactly the problem facing the location and things did not look good.

“We were getting huge amounts of clothing, rocks, wipes and rags blocking up our sewage comminutors on a daily basis,” says Jeff Brewer, the facility maintenance technician at Red Rocks Park.  Along with being labor intensive, the process is both miserable and unsafe.  Brewer added “The sewage vaults are very compact and the odor is terrible.  It was not something any of the staff wanted to be doing and certainly not when we had concert goers on the propery”. 

The sewage comminutor had to go. You’ll never guess what they were using to deal with their growing wipes problem. Read on to find out.
