Capacity Restored in Charlotte County

The Burnt Store Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) treats wastewater from more than 1,200 sewer connections in a southeastern portion of Charlotte County.  Acquired by Charlotte County in 2003, the former 0.25 millions of gallons per day (MGD) facility underwent several upgrades, including doubling its treatment capacity to 0.5 MGD, as well as enabling the facility to simultaneously dispose of reject water and excess effluent produced by the plant.

USST removed 21-cubic yards of sand and grit from three structures at Charlotte County’s Burnt Store WRF.  Thanks to our GritGone Process®, the facility remained in full operation while the debris was removed.

John Thompson Jr., Chief Plant Operator at the Burnt Store WRF says, “The project that U.S. Submergent did for us was wonderful.  They not only helped with our grant application, but their crews were very accommodating and […] professional.”

Accessing particularly tall tanks, like Burnt Store’s 30(+)-foot EQ tank, can be challenging.  Luckily, our Combination3® trucks are equipped with a 49-foot knuckle boom crane with telescoping tubes.  This eliminated the need for additional equipment on the jobsite, saving the facility valuable time and money.
