Peak Flow, MWMC, Oregon
The Peak Flow Management Project provides flow management
piping and diversion facilities to increase the amount of flow that can be
treated at the plant during wet weather peak events. The improvements make it
possible to divert wastewater through an alternative route during high flows
that occur with prolonged winter storms.
The project consists of four additions to the existing
facilities: a 96-inch diameter pipeline to convey flow from the outlet of the
headworks facilities to the inlet of the aeration basins, an 84-inch diameter
pipeline to convey flow from the outlet of the aeration basins to the new high
rate disinfection basin, also constructed as a part of this project, and
finally, flow diversion structures, and flow control and measurement equipment
is also included in the project.The Automation Group
(TAG) provided flow measurement instruments, analytical instruments, field
interface control panels, start-up, testing, and training for the new system.
