The City is taking a proactive action to address the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant's aging solids waste handling infrastructure, to comply with changing and uncertain regulations affecting biosolids, and to respond to the community goals to increase the beneficial use of recovered organic resources city-wide. The proposed project includes the construction of a new building to accommodate the installation of four belt filter presses. The Project also includes mechanisms to convey the resulting cake from the belt filter presses to three storage bins, and to load the cake from the bins into trucks. In addition to the dewatering and truck loadout facility itself, a standby diesel engine generator will be installed to provide backup.
