THE CHALLENGE

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

SOLUTION

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.
