With significant leaks and air escaping through cracks in the road above the piping, St. Croix Valley’s existing below ground distribution system needed major repairs. TKDA designed improvements to address these issues in the aeration system at the MCES St. Croix Valley Waste Water Treatment Plant.
TKDA’s design included new above ground stainless steel piping elevated above the existing service road and aeration tanks with a steel support system. To optimize the sizing of the new piping, TKDA performed calculations in accordance with industry standards for the application. Throughout the design TKDA made considerations for current and future needs. TKDA also provided new flow meters and control valves to ensure accurate control of the air flow to each basin.
