This globally recognized, state of the art facility provides Dallas Water Utilities with reliable sludge processing and dewatering capabilities. An elevated controlled operator mezzanine provides 360 degree views of the facility and ensures worker safety and comfort. Processed sludge is conveyed up to a 45-ft taller hopper structure where solids are discharged to off-loading trucks for on-site hauling. Complete structural rehabilitation of the two sludge blend tanks was implemented adding aluminum geodesic dome covers for odor control abatement. A separate solids operation building constructed adjacent to the facility achieved LEED Silver Certification, providing the Utility with its first ever sustainability award.
