Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Wastewater System Improvements

The Veedersburg Wastewater System Improvements project included improvements to the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to improve overall efficiency of the treatment system and update critical pieces of equipment. The project included replacement of the antiquated aerated lagoon “biolac” treatment system with a new oxidation ditch and two secondary clarifiers, a new influent structure, replacement of the existing UV treatment system with a non-contact type UV system, post-aeration, conversion of the existing north clarifier to a digester, and various improvements to electrical and controls. In addition, the project included the replacement of five lift stations (Primary, Sherman Street, Main Street, College Street, and Viewer Hills) located throughout the Town of Veedersburg to replace deteriorated facilities and improve the operation and efficiency of the collection system.  The project utilized the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) delivery method and was funded in part by the State Revolving Fund (SRF) program.

The $9.5 million project was completed in the fall of 2023.
