Aquapoint provides wastewater treatment systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications between 1,000 gpd and 2 mgd. Our solutions meet NPDES and TMDL standards for advanced nutrient removal and water reuse. Aquapoint generates cost-benefit advantages by integrating modular technologies selected for simplicity, stability, low life-cycle costs and regulatory acceptance. Bioclere a high rate self contained trickling filter and Lotus ActiveCell in MBBR and IFAS configurations are our two main technologies.
At Aquapoint, we understand that each wastewater treatment solution is unique. Our portfolio of fixed-film treatment technologies enable us to address a wide variety waste stream characteristics and demanding treatment standards. Aquapoint's staff includes environmental and process engineers, professional utility and construction executives, freshwater ecologists, certified soil evaluators, and licensed wastewater plant operators who are prepared to assist our clients with the design and permitting of advanced biological wastewater treatment systems.
The products, processes and resources Aquapoint employs generate cost-benefit advantages greater than those associated with conventional onsite systems and traditional sewer. Aquapoint achieves these advantages by integrating modular technologies that have been selected specifically for their simplicity, natural stability, cost effectiveness and regulatory acceptance.

Understanding the unique characteristics of a specific waste stream is essential to designing a successful wastewater treatment system. With over fifty years combined experience in designing and operating wastewater treatment systems, Aquapoint's engineers have the knowledge and understanding to assist design engineers and clients in selecting the proper treatment solution for their needs.
Aquapoint designs wastewater treatment systems for a variety of applications:
The advanced treatment of residential wastewater is typically accomplished with individual NSF certified treatment systems. However, limiting residential treatment to individual on-lot systems can result in less effective nutrient removal and high capital & life cycle costs per home. These undesirable characteristics can be eliminated through the use of residential cluster systems that collect and treat wastewater for entire communities. Cluster System benefits include: low capital and life cycle costs per home, reduced operation costs per home, small footprint and enhanced treatment capability for nutrient reduction.
Commercial wastewater is usually highly concentrated in organic content and complicated by sanitary routines and house keeping habits that shorten the expected life of the soil disposal system. Advanced wastewater treatment will preserve the disposal system indefinitely and often represents a one to three year return on investment for commercial facilities.
Institutional facilities typically have larger wastewater flows with lower organic concentration than commercial waste streams. However, some institutions such as schools may have exceptionally high concentrations of ammonia nitrogen and very erratic peak flows. It is critical to understand the institution’s lifestyle and sanitary routines when designing a treatment system.
Small and rural communities generally find it difficult to assemble the resources to develop a traditional wastewater infrastructure. Yet, without infrastructure it is difficult to enhance property values and economic development. Decentralized wastewater treatment systems represent a low cost, low impact and high benefit solution. Employing modular systems whose processes are natural and require little management is a strategy for success that has the support of Rural Community Assistance Programs (RCAP) and Rural Utility Service (RUS) offices.
