Poplar Bluff Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
Smith&Co. completed a Facility Plan, preliminary engineering report, final design and inspection for the lagoon treatment upgrades for the 10 million gallon per day (MGD) wastewater treatment plant for the City of Poplar Bluff. The project upgraded the City’s existing facilities and included new muffin monster grinders, manual bar screen, new blowers, aeration headers, diffusers, mixers, lagoon covers, a polishing reactor, ultraviolet disinfection, and a new effluent flow meter. The residents within the City of Poplar Bluff passed a bond election in late 2012 to allow the City to pursue low interest financing. The project was funded by the City and MoDNR’s State Revolving Fund.
