What is the Front of Plant Project?

The Front of Plant (FoP) Project consists of the design, construction, permitting, start-up, commissioning, and closeout for the Receiving Lift Station (RLS), Headworks Facility, Odor Control Facilities, Influent Connector Pipe, Chemical Offload Facilities, Civil site work, Emergency Overflow pipe to storage basin and related process support systems. A Progressive Design-Build procurement process guides the Front of Plant work in stages.

This project recently reached a major milestone–the completion of all above ground walls and concrete structures.
SVCW’s contractor partner, Shea Parsons Joint Venture (SPJV), is applying protective coating to the concrete walls and installing several pieces of equipment in the Headworks facility, including bar screens, which act as a mechanical filter to remove large objects like cloth and rags. Wastewater that passes through the bar screens will then pass through the Headcell degritting system. The Headcell serves as a grit separator to capture larger solids, such as sand, gravel and other heavy solid material, to protect downstream equipment from abrasive wear. SVCW chose this unique stacked tray design, which requires no electrical components, to help maintain a smaller carbon footprint.

On site, new Biological Trickling Filters (BTF) will filter air from the Headworks facility and absorb malodorous compounds. The air flow will then proceed to the Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) vessels to further treat odors.
