The influent channel is where the the wastewater will be screened before going to the Biological Treatment structure. The Headworks Building has three channels. At start up, one channel will have mechanically cleaned screening equipment and the middle channel will by a bypass channel with manually cleaned screening equipment. The third channel will be utilized for future growth of the facility.
The contractor has also started excavating the area for the footing of the Headworks Building. The footings will wrap around the entire building and are 5’ deep.
The contractor completed three more wall pours this week. 18 of 26 wall pours are now complete. The walls are expected to be completed in late November.
