A Challenging Environment Calls for Skillful Pros

In Central Florida, a 12 MGD reclamation facility was experiencing a loss of capacity in their north aeration and anoxic basins.  These tanks presented a challenge because they were lined with rows of diffusers that circulate oxygen feeding the microorganisms and bacteria residents that break down the waste.  This job required experienced professionals to access and remove the built-up material, so the customer called on U.S. Submergent Technologies (USST) for a solution. 

USST has cleaned tanks, pipes, and lift stations on over 400 projects around the United States.  Our qualified crews know how to evaluate situations on the ground to get the job done safely and efficiently.

“I am proud of our guys for navigating the hard-to-reach environment along the bottom of these tanks and capably removing large amounts of material,” said Eric Pace, Foreman at USST.  “Our patented equipment and thorough safety measures allowed us to get into these structures and complete the job safely without any incidents.”

At USST, safety is our number one priority, and these structures were vast in size and 20-feet off the ground.  By executing a site-specific health and safety plan, our crews implemented confined space entry protocols, air quality monitoring, and other required safety measures to move in and out of these structures expeditiously.  USST’s versatile Combination Truck has a powerful vacuum that allowed the crew to reach and dispose of a total of 350 tons of sand and grit material. 

To learn more about how USST can restore capacity and flow at your facility call 844-956-1129 or email info@ussubmergent.com.  If you’ve got grit, USST can Grit ‘Er Done!®.
