The Washington State Fire Training Academy (FTA) provides training, collaboration and support to fire departments and other public safety professionals at their facilities in North Bend, WA. The facility operates a closed loop process water system for use in fire training activities. The facility previously utilized a below-grade, oil/water unit for separation of oil & grease compounds prior to reuse of the training water.
As part of an effort to upgrade the removal efficiency of the system, WaterTectonics was contracted to design and manufacture a 1200 gallon per minute water treatment system that incorporated chemical dosing, a pipe flocculator and dissolved air flotation. The system utilized an Allen-Bradley MCC and control panel, integrated controls for an on-site aeration system, and also incorporated telemetry and SCADA integration with existing site systems.
