Cargill Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade
Cargill Meat Solutions
Milnes Construction upgraded the existing WWTP for Cargill Meat Solutions Plant in Wyalusing, PA, with the addition of new grit removal system, nitrification/denitrification and tertiary clarification while maintaining flow and operation of the existing treatment plant. The project required close coordination and cooperation by all parties involved.
Key elements of the project included construction of a new building to house the new grit clarifier, constructing a new 1 million gallon concrete basin and convert an existing 1 M.G. aeration basin into nitrification/denitrification basins, two new circular concrete tanks and installing 40 ft tertiary clarifiers in them. A new operations building will combine existing pumping, chem feed and control facilities. A new electric service is also part of the plant upgrade.
