Bogner Construction Company completes both public and private sector Water & Waste Water Treatment Plant work, consisting of both aerobic and anaerobic systems. Each of our Anaerobic Waste Water Treatment Plant projects use the methane gas bi-product to help alleviate energy costs and make much more efficient use of resources.
Why Build A New Water Treatment Facility?
Water is a crucial component of the health and vitality of any community. The creation of water and waste water treatment facilities is an important job, as it directly impacts the residents of the area and can also be the difference between thriving communities and ghost towns. Without a safe source of water, there is no quality of life.
Water distribution begins at a treatment facility. These plants utilize a multi-step process that makes the water safe for drinking and other crucial uses. Without the removal of waste products and other contaminants, much of the water that enters the facility, such as sewage, would not even be safe in the environment, much less for human consumption.
Water quality is only as good as the treatment facility. The process of purification involves many steps. These steps include filtration, which removes particles from the water, and also disinfection. Desalination also occurs; this removes salt from the water. Fluoride is added which aids in the prevention of cavities, this is considered one of the phenomenal public health achievements in the last century.
The treatment also can include the treatment of hard water. The lack of water softness can leave behind deposits that clog plumbing and make washing anything, difficult. While water hardness does not affect the quality of drinking water, it can cause difficulties when used for other purposes.
Current plants need to be replaced by new water treatment facilities for many reasons. This can be due to usage over time or needed upgrades to outdated equipment. It can also become necessary when a higher volume of water is needed due to regional growth. Newer plants are also less likely to suffer a break in service and also have backup power in case of outages. This increases the likelihood that service will be interrupted.
The time needed to build such a facility varies with the project and depends upon several factors. These can include the size of the plant and the amount of water that it expects to treat. It may also depend upon what current structures are in place that could be used or if they must build it from scratch. A new water treatment facility can bring residents of the region peace of mind in knowing that their water is safe and will never fail to be there when they turn on the tap.
