Evoqua to Supply Continuous Fill Batch Reactor System to Improve Efficiency, Expand Capacity and Address Peak Wet Weather Flows in Eastland, Texas

Posted: Thursday 7th November 2019

Evoqua Water Technologies has been selected by the City of Eastland, Texas to provide a new wastewater treatment system through Evoqua’s sales partner Environmental Improvements (EI2). This upgrade will expand treatment capacity, improve energy efficiency and better handle peak wet weather flows in a small footprint.

The new wastewater treatment system will use Evoqua’s GoFlo™ Continuous Fill Batch Reactor (CFBR) system to treat an average design flow of 0.6 million gallons per day (MGD), with peak flows up to 1.8 MGD, allowing the facility to meet the state’s current and future nutrient removal requirements. The existing wastewater treatment plant constructed in the early 1990s is a conventional activated sludge process and is nearing the end of its useful life.

The GoFlo CFBR system with Jet Tech technology is an efficient, simple to operate biological wastewater treatment process designed to take the complexity out of wastewater treatment. Compared to conventional activated sludge plants, Evoqua GoFlo CFBR system accomplishes equalization, aeration, and clarification in a single reactor basin. The GoFlo™ CFBR system is ideally suited for treating flows from 25,000 gallons per day (GPD) to tens of millions of GPD, with storm flows up to five times the design flow.

Enprotec / Hibbs & Todd, Inc. (eHT) Engineers worked closely with Evoqua to provide the engineering and design. Purcell Contracting Ltd. is the general contractor for this project. Commissioning of the plant is expected to take place in the fall of 2020. Joshua Berryhill, PE, with eHT Engineers stated that his firm and the City of Eastland are excited to see Evoqua’s first continuous flow SBR go online in Texas.
