The City of Winter Springs, Florida utilizes two wastewater treatment facilities (WWTF) to serve its population of more than 35,000 people.  136-miles of sewer mains transport all the city’s wastewater to the city’s East or West WWTF.  These two facilities combined are permitted to treat nearly 4.1 million gallons of wastewater per day.

USST restored the capacity of both the East and West WWTF utilizing our GritGone ProcessSM, and both facilities were cleaned while remaining in full operation.  Our Combination truck removed approximately 88.5-CY of sand and grit and cleaned a total of 12 structures between both facilities.  Amongst those structures were aeration tanks, digesters and grit chambers.  One of the grit chambers was filled with about 10-feet of sand and grit!

Although accessing the structures was difficult, our Combination trucks are equipped with a 49-foot telescoping dripless tube system which allowed our crew to reach all structures without the need or cost of renting additional cranes.
