THE CHALLENGE

Texas City selected In-Pipe Technology, Inc. to provide a collection system bioaugmentation program to control fats, oil and grease (FOG) and H2S odor in the sewer system. The program is also designed to reduce influent load to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), improve the quality of the effluent water, improve the operating efficiency and reduce operating costs at the plant.

THE

SOLUTION

In-Pipe designed a treatment strategy and provided, installed and maintains ninety-six dosing units for the collection system which add a consortium of bacteria throughout the Town’s wastewater collection system. In-Pipe’s blend of facultative anaerobic bacteria form a biofilm inside the sewer pipes which initiates treatment of the wastewater in the sewer system during conveyance to the WWTP. The bacteria also inoculate the influent wastewater with heterotrophic wastewater bacteria that enable a greater degradation of organics and lower oxygen requirements than normal wastewater bacteria.

RESULTS

45%

Decrease in average H2S concentration at a hot-spot in the collection

38%
