Wastewater Treatment Facility
City of New Prague, Minnesota
The City of New Prague was faced with a dilemma many cities face - how to meet the needs of the community with aging wastewater treatment infrastructure. New, more stringent treatment standards were on the horizon, and community development was encroaching the existing facility site. Community leaders felt a new approach was needed to meet these demands.
Bolton & Menk collaborated with the city to develop plans for a new, state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility. The new facility integrated advanced technology to meet the stringent discharge limits. The advanced technology allowed the facility to be completely enclosed, minimizing the impact of operations on the community developing around the facility.
This solution provides the city with a wastewater treatment facility that meets current and proposed treatment requirements, all while moderating the effect of development around the existing facility location.
