Activated Carbon Feed System Improvements at the City of Sandusky WTP

OWDA awarded a $2,071,950 Drinking Water Assistance Fund loan (including planning and design costs) to the City of Sandusky for the installation of a powdered activated carbon feed system and fluorescence equipment. The project is expected to improve reliability, help control algal toxins and remove total organic carbon (TOC) for the control of trihalomethanes at the Big Island Water Works drinking water treatment plant serving the City’s approximately 9,300 customers. The project will replace the City’s undersized carbon system, while providing options for alternate delivery points and feed rates, putting the City in a better position to address future potential issues related to algal toxins.

City of Bucyrus, New Water Treatment Plant

A new 3 million gallon per day lime softening water treatment plant and finished water transmission main from the water treatment plant to the distribution system has been constructed. The City will demolish the existing water treatment plant and the sludge lagoons after the new plant is constructed.
