City of Columbus, Ohio
From the point where untreated wastewater enters the Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), until effluent is discharged into the Scioto River, Burgess & Niple (B&N) has designed improvements to every part of the plant’s treatment process.
Located in Columbus, Ohio, Jackson Pike was built in 1935 and is the oldest WWTP in the city. For almost three decades, B&N engineers have studied, recommended and designed upgrades to extend the useful life of equipment, increase treatment capacity, improve treatment technology and reduce maintenance needs.
Most recently, B&N assisted with hydraulic and design capacity improvements. The projects were completed as part of the City of Columbus 40-Year Wet Weather Management Plan aimed at reducing wet weather overflows by 85 percent. The improvements increased capacity from 120 MGD to 165 MGD and included:
