MWI sewage treatment plant completed

Bermuda Hospitals Board today announces that a new sewage treatment plant at the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute is now operational.
Installation of the plant was completed last Monday and sewage waste is now being processed. The plant is now in the testing / commissioning stage and it is expected to go into full operation within the next two weeks. The new unit – a submerged high performance aerated filter sewage treatment plant, has a filtered vent which eliminates any minor odour emissions. It is also environmentally friendly producing clean effluent which poses no threat to the environment.
The new plant can treat 12,000 gallons of sewage a day, double the capacity of the previous facility.
The new plant is also equipped with a FOG unit which removes fats, oils and grease from the system. This helps to improve the waste processing function, and also helps to reduce odours and will reduce maintenance repairs due to grease and fat buildup and “clogging” of the system.
The sewage treatment plant was installed by BESCO. Its design was approved by both the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Environment. The $701,000 project was completely funded by Government.
