GTI to Help New-Home Community Control Odors from Wastewater Treatment
Geomembrane Technologies Inc. (GTI) is pleased to have been awarded a cover project for a wastewater treatment plant in a new community development in North Carolina, USA.
GTI will design a structurally supported cover for the wastewater treatment plant’s equalization chamber for the purposes of odor control. The cover will help prevent foul odors resulting from wastewater treatment from wafting into the neighboring community.
The custom cover will be designed with truncated arches in order to accommodate the shape of the tank, ensuring a perfect fit. The 27 ft x 27 ft (8 m x 8 m) retractable cover will span the opening of the chamber with the support of aluminum arches. These arches allow the cover to be easily rolled open when needed so that plant operators can access the inside of the tank for routine maintenance and cleaning.
The cover is expected to be installed in the summer of 2016.
