Aerator and Carbon Feed Basin, City of Brookfield

Project Information:

The induced draft aerator and concrete basin are part of the water treatment facility improvements completed in 2010. This system allowed the City of Brookfield to maintain compliance with the disinfection by-product regulations. Improvements consisted of an induced draft aerator, chemical mixing/contact basin, new chemical feed system including powdered activated carbon feed facility, and SCADA system improvements. Volatile Organic Carbon (VOC) removal occurs with the induced draft aerator and is followed with a chemical mixing and contact basin where powdered activated carbon can be fed into the water stream. The water then flows into a primary and a secondary rapid mix and settling basins prior to filtration.
