Supermarkets

Modern-day supermarket chains prepare a larger volume of food onsite creating wastewater with high organic (BOD5) and fat, oil and grease (FOG) content. Many supermarket chains have come to the realization that advanced onsite treatment systems can preserve the life of their drain fields indefinitely. When compared to the cost of a failed septic system and plugged drain field it is estimated that advanced treatment represents a 3-5 year return on investment for supermarkets. With over 50 systems installed for the likes of Stop & Shop, Hannaford Brothers, Publix, Kroger, Food Lion and other regional chains, AquaPoint has the knowledge and technology to successfully treat high strength supermarket waste.

Stop & Shop Supermarket - Foxboro, MA

  • Treatment Objective – High Strength Organic Reduction / Total Nitrogen Removal (< 10 mg/l)

Campgrounds

Campgrounds are frequently located in environmentally sensitive areas that lack municipal wastewater infrastructure. They can also generate highly erratic flow rates as many facilities are seasonal and experience peak events on weekends. AquaPoint has deep experience with the unique characteristics of campgrounds, including The Boy Scouts of America Jamboree Site in Fayette County, West Virginia.

The Summit National Scout Reserve – Fayette County, WV

  • Treatment Objective – Total Nitrogen Removal (< 23 mg/l)
  • Technology – Bioclere™
  • Design Flow – 80,000 gpd
  • Disposal: Spray Irrigation

Hotel & Hospitality

Hotels and motels utilizing advanced treatment systems often face wastewater treatment challenges due to seasonal changes in average daily and peak flow rates. Many resorts are finding ways to reduce water usage costs by implementing low flow devices and or re-using effluent for irrigation purposes. AquaPoint’s fixed film wastewater treatment systems are designed to be resilient and reliable enough to provide advanced treatment under these challenging conditions.

Hilton Garden Inn – Kitty Hawk, NC

  • Treatment Objective – North Carolina TSII Standards/Total Nitrogen Removal (< 20 mg/l)

Travel & Truck Stops

Travel and truck stops are located near major highways, often miles removed from central sewer infrastructure. Wastewater treatment must be both cost-effective and capable of handling all of the treatment needs of travel stops – gas stations, car washes, restaurants, showers and restrooms. AquaPoint advanced systems are meeting that test in locations across the country.

Pilot Travel Center – Winnemucca, NV

  • Treatment Objective – High Strength Organic Reduction / Total Nitrogen Removal (< 10 mg/l TN)
  • Technology – Bioclere™
  • Design Flow – 20,000 gpd

Schools & Universities

School waste streams can represent challenging conditions for biological treatment systems. Typical school sanitary routines increase the potential for toxic shock loading and relatively short school days and after-school events contribute greatly to peak flow conditions. Furthermore, ammonia nitrogen concentrations in the influent are typically 4-5 times that of typical domestic wastewater. With over 60 school applications installed to date, AquaPoint has the expertise to address school waste streams.

Dover Sherborn Regional School System – Dover, MA

  • Treatment Objective – Total Nitrogen Removal (< 10 mg/l)

Spas

The spa experience and wastewater treatment do not go hand in hand. However, spas are often located in secluded locations where reliable and discrete wastewater infrastructure is a necessity.  AquaPoint has provided wastewater systems to upscale spas frequented by some of the country’s most famous people.

Adult & Assisted Living

Adult and assisted living communities are unique. The wastewater from these facilities contains compounds that are unique to the medications of their residents, on top of the normal residential and food service wastewater. With decades of experience in high strength wastewater and unique waste streams, AquaPoint has provided successful solutions to adult living communities for years.
