United Mobile Homes, Inc. (UMH) owns and operates manufactured home communities throughout the Northeastern United States. UMH selected Burgess & Niple (B&N) to perform detailed evaluations of wastewater treatment facilities located at five of their Ohio and Pennsylvania communities.
Treatment capacities for each of these extended aeration facilities ranged between 30,000 and 90,000 gallons per day. Evaluations included:
- Determining the hydraulic and pollutant capacity
- Compliance history review
- Inspection of existing facility conditions
- Recommendations for improvements to achieve/maintain NPDES permit compliance
In addition to the treatment system evaluation, historical data was used to estimate the impacts of stormwater inflow and infiltration on the operation of each facility. Recommendations for some of the facilities included sanitary sewer lining, replacement and repair within specific areas.
