Less than fifty miles from the White House, the two small towns of Catlett and Calverton, VA were in need of an expansive wastewater treatment system. Aqua Tech Systems was part of the design-build team that won the bid for the project. Aqua Tech supplied the Septic Tank Effluent Pump (STEP) collection systems that will settle solids at the homes and only send black water to the treatment facility. Wieser Concrete was chosen by Aqua Tech to provide eighteen precast concrete tanks with capacities ranging from three thousand gallons to forty-thousand gallons. Other equipment provided by Aqua Tech was installed in the Wieser Concrete tanks in order to treat the influent. The treated effluent will be sent to the 40,000-gallon drip irrigation pump tank at the end of the treatment process. Then the treated wastewater will be dosed into an underground network of drip irrigation lines called zones via a Programmable Logic Controller dosing panel.
The effluent will seep into the ground where further treatment will occur before water reaches any groundwater source. The grass crop on the irrigation field will also use the treated water for food and will ultimately evaporate into the air. This system is designed to treat up to 80,000 gallons per day. Completion of the project is expected by May or June of 2021.
Aqua Tech is proud to partner with Wieser. Their precast concrete tanks are an example of the high quality materials we procure to assemble our no-fail systems.
We’re also very thankful to the towns of Catlett and Calverton for allowing us to equip them for responsible growth.
We’d love to help you as well!
