KC serves as Engineer for the Tri-Municipal Sewer Commission (TMSC). As part of this project, KC provided consulting services for the design of a diffused air fine bubble aeration system to replace the fixed surface aeration system. The fine bubble aeration system will provide more efficient oxygen delivery in the aeration basins while reducing the requirement for free board, thereby increasing potential treatment capacity within the existing aeration basins. The fine bubble aeration system also employs a sophisticated control system that monitors the dissolved oxygen levels and pressure of the system. This information is fed back into the control system to raise and lower the speed of the blowers as required. This type of system greatly reduces the utility expenses at the facility and provide better overall treatment of the wastewater flow.
