    Westminster, Colorado

    Upgrade and expansion of the Big Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility was necessitated to accommodate increased population growth in Westminster, which has become Colorado’s eighth largest city. The most significant component of this $44-million project involved increasing the plant capacity from 9.2 to 11.9 million gallons per day (MGD). This level of expansion should meet anticipated wastewater flows for the next 20 years. The project also involved several process improvements such as converting the main treatment process to an advanced biological nutrient removal process, improving odor control facilities, and converting gas chlorine disinfection to ultraviolet light disinfection. Other project highlights included a new headworks and influent pumping station, a new administration/operations building, and upgraded site security.
