Advanced Aeration Technologies Provide Energy and Maintenance Savings

The Town of Monroeville, Alabama, faced aeration and mixing issues, sludge buildup in one of its wastewater lagoons, and power bills of $12,500 per month after a major employer relocated its garment manufacturing facility. 

The company had generated about 90% of the wastewater entering the lagoon, and its fees covered 90% of the operation and maintenance cost, which included $1,500 per month for aerator maintenance. The lagoon was 80% full of biosolids, and the estimated cost to dredge was over $1.6 million. The lagoon had to remain operational and the town needed to reduce costs.

The solution

DO2E installed two 5 hp high-volume floating aerators and two 3 hp floating mixers.

In four years of operation, the equipment saved the town over $513,000 in energy cost and $72,000 in maintenance, while reducing biosolids buildup by 90%.
