M. B. Kahn has completed $3 million worth of construction and improvements at the Daniel Island Wastewater Treatment Plant owned and operated by Charleston Water System, including a new solids handling facility and an odor control system. The scope of work completed includes the installation of a new 2,250 GPM rotary drum screen into an existing screening platform, the construction of a new sludge dewatering building, installation of new piping, a sludge press, new plumbing, HVAC, a 2,000 CFM odor control system, approach channel, and an the completion of final electrical work.
The City of Charleston annexed Daniel Island in 1992 and built the Daniel Island Wastewater Treatment Plant to handle wastewater generated on the Island soon after. Charleston Water has now extended the Cooper Sewer Tunnel under the Cooper River to send the wastewater to the Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, another M. B. Kahn job site. Due to large economical growth on the Island, wastewater now undergoes pretreatment at the Daniel Island WWTP before entering the tunnel to head to Plum Island WWTP for the final treatment process.
