Investigations of available data and a site inspection note the recirculating filter is effectively plugged and in need of remediation or replacement. Other works were noted as either in need of improvement (headworks) or replacement (recirculation tank mixers/aerators), and site constraints leave little area available for replacement of a similar structure without removal of the filter.
MSR examined alternative systems included replacement of the filter with the same, and secondary treatment options previously reviewed by the SCRD. In addition to the treatment options prior to disposal, we have recommended improvements to the inlet piping to minimize solids plugging and to improve flow distribution.
