Commissioners meet the Monster

The Hilton Head PSD Commission toured the utility's Reclaimed Water Plant with General Manager Richard Cyr and Operations Manager Bill Davis this week. The Commissioners got to meet the Monster -- the Bandscreen Monster, that is -- the utility's new, high-tech screen system that removes large solids from the wastewater entering the treatment plant. The Monster, at right in photo above, improves efficiency in the wastewater treatment process. The PSD's treatment process yields Reclaimed Water, which is used to irrigate golf courses and keep wetlands wet. In the photo below, you see treated wastewater in one of the PSD's clarifier tanks, on its way to be chlorinated during the final stage of treatment. It's all part of recycling nearly 1 billion gallons of wastewater every year at the PSD.
