After Garver analyzed 17 alternatives, Claremore approved a plan to incorporate a new wastewater treatment process at its existing site. This conversion has increased the future treatment capacity within the facility's footprint and integrated advanced technologies to produce higher quality effluent.
Garver's design included upgrades to every single process at the plant, converting it from a fixed-film trickling filter system to an advanced activated sludge treatment process with biological nutrient removal (BNR) capabilities.
Garver partnered with the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality to obtain targeted design variances. These variances translated into reduced capital expenditures by retrofitting existing concrete structures for new treatment processes.
Together, the new treatment process is helping the Claremore plant produce effluent well below permit levels for biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), total suspended solids (TSS) and ammonia (NH3).
Garver provided fast-track design to widen and resurface approximately 5 miles of urban freeway on U.S. 169, completing the design of two sets of construction plans in six weeks. The construction plans to widen this major Tulsa freeway included storm sewer design, widening and replacing the bridge over Pine Street, roadway geometrics, construction sequencing, and maintenance of traffic.
