(Raleigh, N.C.) Thanks to its transformative impact on the environment, the economy, and the community, the recently completed R. Steven Biggs Regional Wastewater Pretreatment Facility (WWPTF), donated by Novo Nordisk to the Town of Clayton, North Carolina, is already receiving peer acknowledgment as an innovative public infrastructure resource.

In recognition of the adaptive mixing technologies employed for optimizing treatment at the WWPTF, the Research Triangle Cleantech Cluster (RTCC) presented Gannett Fleming with the Cleantech Water Innovation Award during an RTCC honors ceremony on Dec. 3. Gannett Fleming designed and constructed the facility that serves as regional support for industrial manufacturing pretreatment needs.

According to the RTCC website, “the first-ever event recognized and honored individuals and organizations that drive cleantech innovation in the North Carolina Triangle region. The water innovation award recognizes a water or wastewater project that uses innovative cleantech solutions to create positive impacts.”

“This award represents Gannett Fleming’s deep commitment to innovative and sustainable projects that serve clients needs while also protecting our natural resources,” said David Broughton, Gannett Fleming project management director.

Gannett Fleming recently completed turnkey engineer-procure-construct (EPC) delivery on the $40 million WWPTF that employs an integrated supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that allows facilities to operate in an unmanned capacity. Additionally, the new pretreatment facility utilizes minimal chemicals to ensure the best possible treatment of wastewater in compliance with the rigorous discharge limits set by the state.
