Optimization of Cave Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant

Project number: 
UA Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering
Academic year: 
Wastewater treatment is becoming an increasingly important field with population growth, drought and the looming effects of climate change. Due to these emerging issues, it is imperative to treat our water effectively, in order to reduce our reliance on natural sources.

The team used traditional elements of wastewater treatment, along with creative design, to effectively clean the water. Due to the high number of farms and golf courses in the Cave Creek area, it was also important to cater to these interests of the community. The design of the treatment plant, which adheres to the state of Arizona’s quality standards, was done primarily with Biowin and Microsoft Visio software.
