Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) around the world take in, treat, and release millions of gallons of water every day. Their effectiveness and efficiency is critical to ensuring all the waste does not end up in our rivers, lakes, and ultimately oceans. In this project, we worked with Souder, Miller and Associates (SMA) to evaluate the operations at the San Felipe WWTP and recommend improvements. The team evaluated the plant’s data collection systems, sensors and control devices, and overall operation and maintenance procedures. We created a new data collection system used to collect and verify data reported by sensors at the plant. In a strategic plan we developed, we make recommendations regarding the operations and include ideas for future investments.
