R. M. Clayton

At R.M. Clayton WRC in northwest Atlanta, expansions and improvements were completed to eliminate the bypasses, spills and other problems that have affected the plant over the past several years. New sand filters were installed to keep phosphorus levels within or below state standards. State-of-the-art odor control technology was installed to reduce odors disseminating throughout surrounding areas. A chlorination/dechlorination disinfection system is in place to kill microscopic bacteria. In addition, treatment capacity was expanded from the current 100 million gallons per day (MGD) to 122 MGD. In accordance with the new Clean Air regulations, interim improvements are being made to the plant's incinerator. Long-term plans are to replace the incineration process with a heat dryer technology to treat digested primary and waste activated sludge to produce a marketable soil conditioner and fertilizer. Improvements to the R.M. Clayton WRC began in 1998 and were completed in 2002.
