WRF Process Investigation Study Underway, Biosolid Hauling to Take Place Next Week
The Village Water Reclamation Facility will be conducting biosolid hauling operations from Monday, June 1, through Thursday, June, 4. There will be additional truck traffic and an increase in odors and noise from the facility. This work is weather dependent and subject to change. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to accomplish this necessary action with as little impact to our residents as possible.
The Village of Deerfield has been working on a Process Investigation Study for the Water Reclamation Facility since February of this year. The nationally recognized firms of Donohue & Associates and Webster Environmental Associates were hired based on their qualifications in wastewater and odor control engineering.
This team will be assessing the current operations of the facility and taking air samples throughout the different processes of the WRF. They will then determine if process changes can be made to reduce odors as well as develop odor control alternatives that may include capital projects. This study is projected to be completed in late summer or early fall 2020.
As part of this study, residents are asked to report any odors from the facility to provide data for further analysis. Residents can use an on-line form found here.
