Municipal Applications

Environmental Dewatering

TenCate Geotube® technology dewaters primary, secondary and overflow sludge from the sewage treatment plants’ digesters and lagoons. This municipal dewatering solution is used in water and wastewater treatment applications including lagoons, tanks, and digester cleanouts. The containers can provide dewatering and containment in one operation, with 85% to 90% reduction of BOD in the effluent. Most of the time, the dewatered effluent is clear and safe enough to be returned to the sewage treatment plants.

TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology can be used seasonally, with solids safely stored onsite between uses. It can also be a very effective way of handling septage, either at a private receiving station or a municipal site. TenCate Geotube® units are available in sizes to fit drying beds. There is also a unit designed to fit in a roll-off box (TenCate Geotube® MDS) for convenience.
