COST: $2.3 Million
- New Treatment Plant
- Phased Approach
- Industrial Park Addition
- Alternatives Analysis
The City of Oak Ridge was in need of a new wastewater treatment plant to serve a planned residential development. LDA was retained by the City to develop a phased construction program to accommodate the planned capacity. It was determined that the ultimate flow would be approximately 2.4 MGD.
LDA also recommended activated sludge as the treatment process. Additionally, the total capacity was built in 4 units of .6 MGD. Due to the anticipated low flow, Phase 1a was proposed as a 0.2 MGD extended aeration process to be converted later to the 0.6 MGD conventional activated sludge.
An expansion to 0.6 MGD was constructed after the K-25 Federal facility was added to the system, as well as the Clinch River Industrial Park, which has been added to the system.Back to Projects
