Piqua Wastewater Treatment Plant

Project Name: Piqua Wastewater Treatment Plant

Piqua, OH
Estimated Completion: Spring 2020

Project Overview

Woolace Electric, on the heels of the completion of Piqua’s new water treatment plant, have been awarded the contract for the electrical part of their new wastewater treatment plant.  We will be responsible for all electrical control wiring and systems integration for this project.

The upgrades and expansion to the plant are necessary to address a mandate from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to eliminate sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) within the city, which is wastewater that overflows into the Great Miami River without being treated.  The improvement project will also increase the plant’s capacity to treat wet-weather flow without sewer back-ups and treatment tank overflows.

Included in the upgrade are the installation of oxidation ditches to provide biological treatment, as well as three clarifiers that almost double the current capacity to remove treated solids from a liquid stream. During the upgrade, Piqua will convert to ultraviolet disinfection and plant SCADA system from the old chlorine contact tank.
