Schuylkill Valley Sewer Authority

Schuylkill Valley Sewer Authority Collection System

Middleport Borough, New Philadelphia Borough, Blythe Township, Schuylkill Townships - Schuylkill County, PA

In accordance with the Sewage Facilities Plan, Benesch designed a new sewage collection system and wastewater treatment facility. The collection system consists of approximately 30 miles of pipe while the treatment facility is an intermittent cycle extended aeration system (ICEAS) with a design flow of 550,000 GPD. Disinfection is provided by ultraviolet light, and solids handling is accomplished through aerobic digestion and dewatering on reed-planted drying beds. This project included design of an access road and a single span concrete bridge. In-house value engineering workshops resulted in a final project cost $68,000 under budget.
