Lakeshore Drive Wastewater Treatment Plant, Trumbull County, Ohio

 

In its efforts to accommodate continuing development around Mosquito Lake, one of Ohio's largest lakes, in Trumbull County, upgrades to the existing treatment plant are being undertaken. The overall improvements included converting the existing treatment tanks to a flow equalization tank for wet weather events, the installation of an 85,000 GPD dual train packaged treatment system, and increasing the sand filtration area by an additional 50 percent.

The original plant expansion design specified a painted steel treatment system, however, due to the sites small footprint and staging space, the steel system proved to be undesirable. Penetron teamed with the contractor and Ohio's largest precaster to submit a more durable Penetron Admix treated precast concrete system which was also able to meet the installations restrictions of the site.

In addition to a more flexible footprint to fit within the project confines, the precast system also offered additional benefits such as a dual train system which allowed for convenient operation and maintenance, and a greater life span expectancy with Penetron Admix treated concrete over that of the steel plant.

The Owner, Trumbull County, and the design engineers, ES & C International, have been so pleased with the performance of the plant and Penetron Admix that they have specified Penetron's surface applied products to resolve leaks in the existing treatment tanks.
