Demolition time

The PSD is demolishing the former wastewater treatment plant in Hilton Head Plantation to make way for our new Aquifer Storage & Recovery (ASR) well. Above, a portion of the chlorine contact chamber is removed. In the photo below, a pile of rebar from the concrete tanks on the property awaits hauling and recycling. The PSD's demolition contractor will be salvaging and recycling materials from the site, such as rebar and concrete. The ASR well will store treated drinking water in the Middle Floridan Aquifer during the winter months of low demand, and withdraw it for treatment and distribution during the summer months of higher demand. The well is expected to be operable by the summer of 2013.
