COOLIDGE — After months of work removing sludge and grease, EUSI LLC Manager Kris Hendricks said the only thing solid left at the Coolidge wastewater treatment plant was the team in place to clean up the mess.
The city of Coolidge, in partnership with EUSI, appears to have successfully solved a stinky situation at the plant after a 90-day project that began in March.
During a special study session held before the City Council on Monday, Hendricks gave a presentation on the status of the city’s sewer system. After months of cleaning, as well as retrofitting some of the equipment such as new aeration units, the site appears to be generating significantly less hydrogen sulfide running through the effluent pipes.
