McKim & Creed provided process design evaluation, detailed plant design, permitting, and bidding services for the Meadowcrest Wastewater Treatment Facility expansion project. A detailed process evaluation was conducted to review biological process options, pre-treatment options and filtration and disinfection options that would minimize capital costs for the County while achieving reuse quality effluent with an expanded capacity from 0.5 mgd to 2.0 mgd. The evaluation included detailed review of Modified Ludwig Ettinger (MLE), Step Feed, and expansion using the existing Bardenpho® process. The evaluation concluded that the Step Feed approach could result in substantial savings in required footprint and recycle flow infrastructure. McKim & Creed completed the process design on the facility. The design provided for future expansion from 2.0 mgd to 4.0 mgd in phases. McKim & Creed provided the process design for the prime consultant Hoyle Tanner & Associates, and worked closely with Leggette, Brashears & Graham on the management of reclaimed water from the facility including evaluation of and expansion of the on-site rapid infiltration basins.
