Project Description:

The City of Geneva proposes to modify the sludge treatment facilities at the existing Marsh Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant to produce "Class A" biosolids. The facility is located 45 Doran Avenue in Geneva and is anticipates producing 280 dry metric tons per of sludge solids per year.

The sludge is currently processed through an existing two-stage Autothermal-Thermophilic Aerobic digestion (ATAD) process at the site.
