AdvanTex® Replaces Failing Sand Filter

New Wastewater System Installed Before Busy Summer Season

Problem

A failing sand filter — which treated wastewater from a recreational day-use facility located on the edge of Sutton Lake, West Virginia — required replacement, quickly, before the busy summer season began.

Solution

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) replaced the sand filter with an Orenco AdvanTex® Treatment System, using a fast, no-bid procurement process. In addition, USACE were able to utilize the existing NPDES permit allowing direct discharge into Sutton Lake, speeding the process even more.
