Document Description
The Proposed Project includes improvements to an existing Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) near the town of Grayson. The WWTP provides domestic wastewater services to residents within the boundary of the Grayson Community Services District. The proposed improvements do not include an expansion of the facility. The Proposed Project includes the installation of a mechanical screen to assist in the filtration of Class 8 solids (sludge). The existing practice for biosolid and inorganic processing at the Wastewater Plant is not sustainable. As a byproduct of the treatment process, the facility generates Class 8 solids which must be periodically hauled and removed from the site. As stated above the proposed improvements include consists of the installation of a mechanical screen at the headworks of the wastewater treatment plant which will replace the current manual screen and improve the performance ofthe Wastewater Facility. The mechanical screen would facilitate the filtration process and decrease the level of inorganic solids and sludge to be removed.
