The Owner is planning improvements to the Biosolids Management Facilities at the W. B. Casey Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF). The WRRF is an activated sludge wastewater treatment plant with a maximum monthly average daily flow capacity of 24 mgd.

The planned improvements include primary sludge thickening, anaerobic digestion, dewatering, cake receiving, thermal drying, and incorporating certain existing units into the biosolids handling system. The project upgrades are documented in the Preliminary Engineering Report which can be found at: https://www.ccwa.us/procurement/#CaseyBiosolids.
