Project: Central Clear Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility Improvements
Location: 3545 Stanley Rd, Dumont, CO
Community Served: Central Clear Creek Sanitation District
Project Cost: $4.2M

The project will improve water quality in Clear Creek for community residents and businesses in and near Dumont, Colorado and downstream communities.  CWSRF programs operate around the country to provide states and communities the resources necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects our valuable water resources nationwide.

Project Description
A new membrane bioreactor (MBR) system with a hydraulic capacity of 100,000 gallons per day (gpd) will be constructed to replace 40 year old equipment that is currently in use.  The project consists of two parallel MBR trains containing submerged membrane filtration modules in steel tanks, pumps, blowers, diffusers, instrumentation, and process control system, flow equalization basins, new influent screening and grit removal system, and conversion of an existing clarifier to an aerobic digester.  The new treatment process equipment will be housed in a new prefabricated metal building with a floor area of approximately 3,400 square feet area.  The project will improve operational reliability of the treatment facility and protect water quality in Clear Creek.

Water Quality Benefits
The project will protect aquatic life in Clear Creek and improve water quality for recreation and drinking water supply for downstream communities. 

The project construction schedule began April 2017 and was completed in Spring 2018.
