Synopsis:

 

This recent LVPIX Roundtable, sponsored by Hazen and Sawyer Engineering, gave a “Sneak peek” into the exciting new equipment and system upgrades that are getting underway at the Easton Area Joint Sewer Authority (EAJSA) Wastewater Treatment Plant. This includes a planned disk filter system project for increased solids removal before the chlorine contact tank. Second, an upgrade of the current rotomats to a flow-through system project will increase the efficiency of rags and large solids removal. Thirdly, a planned combined heat and power project will utilize fats, oils, and grease to increase gas production and greatly reduce the facility’s energy costs. These upgrades can turn into cost savings for the permitted industries involved with the EAJSA.

During the 2004-2005 time period, a Lehigh Valley-based industry was ordered to pay a fine to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which subsequently was earmarked as funds for the PIX Group with the understanding it would become a nonprofit incorporation and continue its work with environmental awareness to the people, industry, and regulators of the Lehigh Valley. PIX, Inc. became incorporated as a 501(c)3 association in May 2005. To date, PIX, Inc. has held various seminars with the support of local industries and vendors ranging from local case studies, regulatory updates, innovative pretreatment options, and effects of emerging contaminants.
