Water Treatment Plant Flocculators/Clarifiers

Project Cost: $316,000
Contractor: FabTech
Completed in 2016: The Water Treatment Plant (WTP) has three clarifiers and each has flocculator assemblies. A flocculator is a slow rotating paddle assembly that mixes the hydrated lime, with the raw well water allowing the lime to adhere to the iron and manganese particles in the water and coagulate. Then the coagulated particles settle out of the water into the bottom of the clarifier. This lime residual is then discharged to storage lagoons and then beneficially reused for agricultural purposes. The project consisted of replacing the original flocculator assemblies that were installed in 1978 as well as the slide gates and actuators in clarifiers 1 and 3.
