Farmington, Mo., Orders Heliscreen for CSO Mitigation
While Hydro International has installed hundreds of Heliscreen systems in the United Kingdom, the project in Farmington, Mo., is the company's first installation in the United States.
The Heliscreen system will be used as part of a combined sewer overflow (CSO) mitigation project at Farmington’s East Treatment Plant.
The Heliscreen is a compact powered CSO screening system with the ability to operate under surcharged conditions. With low headloss and a small footprint, it works well in retrofit installations with hydraulic or physical site constraints. The Heliscreen is a quarter-inch (6 millimeter) perforated screen designed to handle a peak hourly flow of 8.1 million gallons per day.
Farmington’s East Treatment Plant's CSO mitigation project will help the facility adhere to stricter environmental laws. The screening system is part of a plant enhancement and expansion to accommodate an increase in the average flow capacity from 1.3 million to 2 million gallons per day.
