(COLUMBIA, MO) - The City of Columbia Sewer Utility has scheduled an Interested Parties meeting to discuss proposed plans to construct mechanical screen at Wetland Pump Station No. 3. The meeting is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. October 6, 2021, in the conference room at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Debris obstructs incoming wastewater at wetland treatment unit No. 3 effluent pump station. The debris must be manually removed, which is labor-intensive and can be hazardous in icy conditions during the winter months. To solve this concern, the Stormwater Utility is proposing the design and construction of an automated bar screen system that will remove debris and divert it to the side of the pump station, where is can be more easily removed.
