ICS Penetron International Ltd., a leader in integral crystalline waterproofing products announced that the Summerville Commissioners of Public Works (SCPW) recently selected Earth Tech, Inc. to design the new systems additions to the SCPW Waste Water Treatment Facility.
Recently Earth Tech, Inc. (an international provider of global water management and transportation, engineering and environmental services for municipal, government and industrial clients) was selected to design the new systems additions to the Summerville Commissioners of Public Works (SCPW) Waste Water Treatment Facility. In the design of this project, which includes a new 5.0 MGD screenings facility and RAS/IAS Pump station among the many other additions and conversions, Earth Tech, Inc specified the use of Penetron Admix for the entire structure of the new Pump Station Wet Well, base slab of the Clarifier Tank and the floor and retaining walls of the Screenings Building. With these facility additions and changes, the SCPW is estimated to realize an initial annual savings of approximately $350,000 per year.
