Kenneth W. Hotz Water Reclamation Facility (OH)
Black & Veatch - Progressive Design-Build
It can take a lot of energy to kill pathogens and harmful bacteria in wastewater. That is, when your processing technology is 40 years old like Medina County's was at the Kenneth W. Hotz Water Reclamation Facility (formerly the Liverpool Wastewater Treatment Plant). To process the facility's biosolids more efficiently and save energy costs, the county implemented a design-build performance contract.
