Effluent treatment dairy

Waterleau completed turnkey design build of a wastewater pretreatment system for a major yogurt manufacturer. Waterleau’s customized system replaced the facility’s existing activated sludge aerobic treatment system. It incorporated two Krofta dissolved air flotation (DAF) units – for primary solids separation and sludge thickening, along with two stages of moving bed biofilm bioreactors (MBBRs) to provide a comprehensive, total treatment solution.

The existing system was over capacity and the customer was forced to haul excess wastes offsite for treatment at a significant cost.In addition, the client had plans to increase production over the next few years. In order to bring the facility into compliance and eliminate these costs, the new pretreatment system was constructed in just 16-weeks.

From the start of this project, Waterleau worked closely with the customer to design a system that used the best available technology, while providing a cost effective solution to meet the current and future wastewater treatment needs of the manufacturing plant.
