Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to rehabilitate portions of the solids handling area at the Robert A. Skinner Water Treatment Plant. Several components of the solids handling system need to be upgraded to improve reliability and enhance compliance with waste discharge regulations. Proposed work includes: replacement of the solids handling building's bridge crane to properly maintain the system's mechanical belt presses and improvements to the exterior solids storage and truck loading area, including replacement of asphalt with a concrete containment pad, sump, and curbing, to fully contain dewatered solids and contaminated rainwater.
