Annual Lab Certification

We have just finished our annual certification review testing for 2015.

The Weiser Wastewater Treatment Center is required by the EPA to complete certification by an independent testing firm on an annual basis. Samples are provided by the third-party certification company that have unknown (to us) values. We perform the following tests and submit the results to the company:

  • Totals suspended solids (TSS)
  • Total chlorine residual (cl2)
  • pH analysis
  • Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD)
  • E-coli
  • Total phosphorous

Our results are then compared to the results obtained by the third-party laboratory  and certification is issued for our own wastewater laboratory.

Thank you to Kaylynn Edwards (lab tech at Weisers Wastewater Plant) for all your hard work.

S.C.A.D.A. System

The wastewater treatment facility is in the midst of an upgrade to a new S.C.A.D.A. (supervisory control and data acquisition) system to assist our team in monitoring pumps, flows, and other data from our treatment facility, lift stations, and industrial customer monitoring stations.

Several additional processes are tied into this system for equipment failure, alarming, and trending reports.

This system is designed to handle current processes and for future expansion to meet new EPA requirements for phosphorus reduction in the next few years.

Drying Beds

We are actively engaged in wind-rowing and rotovating digested sludge accumulated over the past fall and winter. This is a constant process which allows for drying the sludge until the moisture content is low enough for testing at a third-part laboratory . The laboratory tests for heavy metals bacteria and other contaminants.

After the sludge passes the laboratory tests it can be utilized by local growers for land application as fertilizer.
