Case story

Waterworks and Sewer Board Prichard

USA, Alabama

Prichard, AL is a town of about 30,000 people north of Mobile, AL. There are two wastewater treatment plants that service this area. The original design of both plants utilized sand drying beds. However, because the Mobile area is one of the wettest areas of the country, the drying beds were very inefficient and not able to effectively handle the daily production of digester bio solid sludge.

Additionally, the removal of the dried sludge from the beds was extremely labor intensive and time consuming. Geotube® dewatering technology was able to improve efficiency, reduce labor costs handle the volume regardless of the weather.
