Orenco Receives Another "Top Projects" Award
For the second year in a row, we've received a "Top Projects" award from Water & Wastes Digest. This year's award-winning project is located in Vero Beach, Florida, a densely populated city next to the Indian River Lagoon on Florida's east coast. Many of the city's on-lot septic tanks and drainfields were failing, and experts believed that nitrogen, phosphorus, and bacteria from these systems were contributing to the pollution of the watershed. To address these concerns, approximately 1,500 septic systems are now being replaced with an Orenco Sewer system, at about half the cost of gravity sewer. For all the details, check out our Vero Beach Case Study.
Effluent Sewer Systems: Real-World Data Available
Those who work with effluent sewers know - and have demonstrated repeatedly - that they're the most cost-effective solution when looking at whole-life costs. Orenco's Terry Bounds, P.E., and Grant Denn recently wrote a paper that helps designers and engineers develop accurate cost information about effluent sewers based on facts, not conjecture.

Orenco Systems Chosen for "Top Projects" Award
An Orenco project in Christiansburg, Ohio, was named a 2015 “Top Project” by Water & Wastes Digest. Winners were chosen based on the challenges presented by their projects and how they met those challenges. Sam Carter, Orenco’s Sales and Marketing Director, accepted the award at WEFTEC 2015 in Chicago. To learn more about this award-winning project, see our Christiansburg Case Study.
