In-Pipe Technology® Company, Inc. was selected with goals to improve the biological treatment capacity at the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) without capital expansion of the current facility. Due to the inability to make a capital investment to expand unit operations and processes, a municipal treatment plant in Montemorelos can not meet the needs of a growing community resulting in a heavily overloaded plant. The plant is operated by Services of Water and Drainage of Monterrey (SADM)
The Montemorelos WWTP receives an annual average flow of 1.15 MGD (4390 m3 /day). The WWTP operating data indicates the plant experienced trouble processing the current high loading and meeting the discharge limits. With BOD and TSS limits of 30 mg/l, the plant discharged water 4x BOD and 2x TSS limits to the receiving stream.
