Pennsylvania wastewater treatment plant upgraded with GE’s LEAPmbr* technology
Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania has selected GE and its LEAPmbr* membrane bioreactor technology to upgrade the Brush Creek sewage plant, increasing its wastewater treatment capacity without expanding its footprint. Once complete, the expanded Brush Creek Water Pollution Control Facility will treat more than 7 million gallons per day of wastewater, and the effluent will meet current and future nutrient and discharge limitations.
GE is supplying its LEAPmbr advanced wastewater treatment system to GHD, an engineering procurement and construction company operating with projects in water, energy, resources, property development and transportation.
The Brush Creek Water Pollution Control Facility currently treats 3.4 million gallons of wastewater per day and once the expansion is complete in early 2018, it will be able to treat an average of 7.2 million gallons of wastewater daily. In the future, the plant will be able to increase capacity to 8.73 million gallons per day and have an organic capacity of 19,200 pounds per day.
The plant provides wastewater treatment services to all of Cranberry Township along with portions of Pine, Marshall and New Sewickley Townships. Wastewater is collected from area homes, businesses and industries and after being treated is discharged into Brush Creek.
