Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Plant Aeration Basin Diffuser, Sludge Tank, & Other Improvements Charleston, South Carolina
M. B. Kahn has completed several improvements at Charleston Water System’s Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, including a $12.5 million project that involved the construction of a new wastewater blower building, rehabilitation of the Plant’s headworks, piping upgrades, and equipment installations including a fine-bubble diffuser aeration system for the Plant’s water pollution control process.
Plum Island uses primary and secondary treatment methods to remove pollutants then releases the cleaned water into the Charleston Harbor. In 2013, the Plant was awarded the Platinum Peak Performance Award by the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) for six consecutive years of 100% permit compliance. In 2017, M. B. Kahn completed a $500,000 work of interior renovations to the four existing maintenance and office buildings.
