An Interesting and Ingenious Mix for Salida Wastewater

Once in a while we hear of something different or even peculiar in Wastewater treatment processes. Such is the case with the Salida treatment facility in Colorado where operators quietly treat wastewater and septage and discharge sparkling effluent to the Arkansas River.  There is a well thought out process for this interesting mix and while the Salida crew has been around for a while, the treatment processes are relatively new.  The original plant was built in 1956; old trickling filters were replaced with rotating bio-contactors in 1985. The new plant takes flow from the City of Salida as well as wastewater from nearby Poncha Springs. Average daily flow at present is about 0.88 mgd (million gallons/day). Influent flows by gravity over a bridge across the Arkansas River to the plant, where it enters the preliminary treatment facility for screening and grit removal.  The grit removal system is the same except for new pumps. The project included a pump station designed for a 500-year flood that would enable the plant to force-feed wastewater out to the river in case of extremely high water.  Recently, the facility received Plant of the Year Award from the Colorado Rural Water Association for its ingenuity and remarkable progress.
