When the City of Hartford sought to lower O&M costs of its expansive sewer system, it turned to REA to learn how our technology could help.
Once we had a good understanding of its infrastructure, including its wastewater treatment plant, we were able to identify quick wins for them.
Our first recommendation was to deploy our Grease Recovery Units at certain pump stations located upstream from troubled sewer lines. For this type of application, our GRUs were designed to preempt sewer-line blockages caused by FOG build-up. When installed, GRUs can successfully remove FOG from sewer lines in an efficient manner with only periodic attention required.
