Replacing Traditional Bar Screens At North Carolina Wastewater Treatment Plant Improves Employee Safety And Reduces Maintenance

Cabarrus County NC FP-M

The Water and Sewer Authority of Cabarrus County (WSACC) serves selected water and sewer needs for five jurisdictions in south-central North Carolina—Cabarrus County, Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg and Mount Pleasant—providing wholesale wastewater transportation and treatment and reservoir management.

One of WSACC’s primary facilities is the Rocky River Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (RRRWWTP) in Concord. This two-stage 26.5 MGD biological wastewater treatment facility processes domestic and industrial wastewater from both in-plant and off-site sources. An innovative utility, RRRWWTP’s solids processing operation relies on a combination of proven and innovative equipment including energy-saving and environmentally sustainable technologies.
