Water Reclamation Facility Improvements | Mason City, Iowa

The City of Mason City, Iowa has experienced significant growth in recent years, including the industrial growth of such major food production industries such as Kraft, Curries, and Cargill Kitchen Solutions. Although the existing wastewater treatment facility was able to handle the current loadings from the City and its industries, Mason City took the proactive approach of expanding the facility to have adequate capacity for attracting additional food production industries to town. WHKS provided design and construction phase engineering services for the treatment facility improvements, including a new intermediate clarifier and primary digester, larger sewage lift pumps, upgrades to the existing sludge thickening facilities, and a new ultraviolet radiation system for disinfection of the treated effluent prior to being discharged into the Winnebago River.
