Video: Charlevoix Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements

June 20, 2016

The City of Charlevoix partnered with Prein&Newhof to redesign its wastewater treatment plant located on the coast of Lake Michigan. “Why?” You ask.

The plant was experiencing some significant problems. It had difficulties appropriately nitrifying cold water in the winter, managing the increased demand for water during the warmer tourist months, and meeting new MDEQ regulations and safety standards. So what did Prein&Newhof recommend?

Watch the video (filmed in the autumn of 2015) to find out!

The American Society of Civil Engineers awarded this project with its Quality of Life Certificate of Merit Award in 2016.
