Omussee Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
The Omussee Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant was constructed in 1969. Due to the facility’s age, the projected growth within the Omussee Creek basin, and the desire to treat a higher wastewater capacity, the City of Dothan needed to prepare a Facilities Plan Update. This update would define current and future regulations, as well as assess the age and condition of the current facilities. This opportunity also allowed for an analysis of future needs and criteria development to evaluate treatment alternatives.
Barge Design Solutions developed a plan that reviewed the plant’s current state to help the City plan for the future. After the Facilities Plan Update was approved, Barge Design Solutions proceeded with the design of the recommended improvements, including a new treatment train and pump stations to serve the entire plant.
Existing facilities were repurposed for other uses as needed. The design includes provisions to meet future regulations that may be implemented, and space has been provided for future expansion.
