Brown and Caldwell | Bush Brothers Process Water Reclamation Facility

The Process Water Reclamation Facility, improved the quality of land-applied irrigation water and reduced well-water consumption by reusing reclaimed process water for Bush Brothers & Company. The reuse capability provided more than 70 million gallons per year of raw water savings, with plans to increase to 100 million gallons. Innovative engineering included anaerobic, aerobic, physical separation, and membrane treatment of process water and complex biogas treatment components. Design-build produced a consistent team engaged from concept design to startup, providing accountability and enhanced collaboration. The project reduced Bush’s water requirements by 30 percent and provided increased reliability, flexibility, and effluent quality.
