Cave Springs

We’re on our 100th rodeo when it comes to addressing the wastewater treatment challenges rapid growth brings to small and medium-sized towns. Here’s a case in point:

Situated in the shadow of Walmart corporate offices, Cave Springs, Arkansas, needed to prepare for growth. A master plan including nearly 1500 homes was adopted by the city council.

Cave Springsofficials needed to ensure that this expansion wouldn’t negatively impact the environment especially since the watershed hosts a species of endangered blind cave fish.

Aqua Tech installed these two wastewater treatment reactors with a 412,000 gallon/day capacity!

The water that comes out of this system is well below regulatory limits on biologicals and suspended solids, but we added one more level of treatment…

A golf course!

The fairways of The Creeks golf course, keep residual nitrogen and phosphorus from reaching Cave Springs’ sensitive watershed. And they get irrigated in the process!

Cave Springs is just one of many small towns we’ve worked with over the 20+ years Aqua Tech has been designing and installing wastewater systems. Sadly, we’ve also encountered situations in which city governments have waited too long to expand or remediate their failing wastewater systems. If your town’s wastewater has become an area of concern, let’s talk about your options.
