CSU Mountain Campus Wastewater
WWE was hired by Colorado State University (CSU) to provide wastewater treatment process evaluation and design expertise for its Mountain Campus in Pingree Park, Colorado.
WWE will prepare an alternatives analysis of wastewater treatment systems with the aim of developing a budgetary cost estimate that CSU will use to pursue funding for a new wastewater treatment system. CSU owns and operates the existing, seasonal, 20,000-gallon-per-day, extended aeration activated sludge wastewater treatment plant. WWE’s evaluation will address high organic loading and nitrogen discharge limits, as well as expanding the current capacity of the treatment facility.
WWE has also been asked to evaluate the drinking water system at the CSU San Luis Valley Research Center, located east of Del Norte. The system has been classified as a public water system and will need modifications to comply with treatment and monitoring standards required by the state of Colorado.
WWE’s Wayne Lorenz and David Foss look forward to working with Susanne Cordery, P.E., an Environmental Engineer with CSU’s Facilities Management department.
