SFCSD Water Reclamation Facility Expansion

About the Project

The South Fort Collins Sanitation District (SFCSD) Project expanded the Water Reclamation Facility to accommodate growth within the service area, increasing its capacity from 4.5 million gallons per day (MGD) to six MGD during Phase 1 (with provisions to expand to nine MGD in the future). This project included nutrient removal facilities to meet the limits of Regulation 85. Additional improvements to the solids handling facilities enabled SFCSD to reuse their biosolids (in compliance with 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 503 biosolids regulation). The project added several new facilities: a step feed aeration basin, blower building, secondary clarifier, Auto Thermophilic Aerobic Digestion and a biofilter. Components of the project included rotary drum thickeners, influent pumps, blowers, pumps and a UV system. Other improvements included yard piping, grading, paving, electrical and instrumentation and control.
