Aqua Operations is working with W.M. Lyles Co. on the startup of the City of Fresno-Clovis Regional Tertiary Treatment and Disinfection Facility designed by Parsons Engineering. Mike Popichak is the startup coordinator of the MBR facility featuring UV disinfection designed to take the primary effluent of the existing secondary treatment facility receiving approximately 70 million gallons per day collected through more than 1,500 miles of sewer.
This is the second time teaming up for plant startup of a Parsons design and W.M. Lyles construction with Aqua Operations. Mike Popichak, a principal partner of Aqua Operations, will act as coordinator of this project in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Previously, this same team designed, built and commissioned the City of Tulare Industrial Wastewater Treatment Facility featuring 6 sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) with a designed flow of 12 million gallons per day.
