Outdated Equipment
The Heard County Water Authority serves over 380 connections in and around Franklin, Georgia. With a growing population, Heard County was beginning to  exceed the capacity of the existing wastewater treatment plant.

Limited treatment capacity, outdated equipment, and increasingly stringent effluent requirements led Heard County to update their wastewater treatment plant. Working with Hayes, James, & Associates, Heard County began evaluating processes to determine the simplest and most costeffective solutions for their new treatment plant.

The updated plant was permitted for 250,000 gallons/day but designed for 700,000 gallons/day, with 100% redundancy. Increased capacity and redundancy provided a sustainable system, allowing the plant to upgrade the discharge permit without the need to purchase new equipment in the future.

Equipment Selection
In 2008, WesTech was selected to provide the major process equipment for the new plant including one (1) CleanFlo All-In-One Combined Headworks System, two (2) STM-Aerotors, two (2) COP Clarifiers, and one (1) WWETCO FlexFilter.

The WesTech CleanFlo All-In-One is a pre-engineered headworks system that includes fine screening, screenings dewatering, and aerated grit removal in a compact, self-standing unit.
