City of LaPorte Aeration Basin Cleaning

July 14, 2014

‹ Back to news

Our industrial cleaning crews recently completed the cleaning of three aeration basins that were built up with residual sludge due to years of product accumulating in various access points. Horizon Environmental participated in the public bid process, provided the lowest bid and was awarded the project. Following the guidelines of the bid structure, we utilized a supervisor, a number of environmental technicians and an operator for an Air Machine/Guzzler to vacuum the waste and clean each basin. Our teams battled through thick sediment, rain delays, hot weather and still were able to average approximately two weeks of cleaning time per basin. (pick photo of working in the aeration basin)
