Tenino Holds Open House for Wastewater Treatment Plant

shapeimage_1[1]An open house was held Sunday at the newly-construction City of Tenino Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Mayor was on hand along with Council Members and community leaders to celebrate the completion of the wastewater treatment plant. The event provided an opportunity for residents to see the project first hand.

The new treatment plant is a membrane bioreactor (MBR) with the ability of treating 0.375 million gallons per day (mgd). The plant produces Class A reclaimed water that is gravity discharged into a groundwater recharge basin. Gibbs & Olson provided the planning, design and construction phase services for the $17 million project that included wastewater treatment, reuse and collection system components.

The MBR plant protects Tenino’s potable water, removes the need to condemn houses and avoids regulatory mandates. The plant also promotes economic development by giving businesses an affordable solution for wastewater treatment.
