The Jonathan Alder Schools’ wastewater project is an excellent example of Sands Decker providing economical and timely solutions to wastewater treatment problems, and demonstrates our expertise in multiple wastewater treatment and related disciplines. The school district was building a new high school and converting the existing high school to a middle school, which required consideration of the wastewater treatment systems for both buildings. Since the new high school was tributary to the Darby Creek, which is a protected water resource, the district needed to obtain a permit from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, a costly and time-consuming process.

Sands Decker presented options and the school district elected to pump the wastewater produced at the new high school to the future middle school for treatment at a new plant. Sands Decker prepared construction drawings and specifications and provided Ohio EPA approval services for a 12,500 gallon per day wastewater treatment plant, lift station, and force main.
