Pinal Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility

Wastewater Truck

The wastewater treatment plant is part of a sanitary sewer system that receives domestic wastewater from residential and commercial sources in the City of Globe. There are no significant industrial users connected to the treatment works.

Our operators have complied with the Requirements for Operator Certification in the State of Arizona pursuant to the Arizona Revised Statues, Title 49, Chapter 2, Articles 9 and 10, and Arizona Administrative Code, Title 18, Chapter 5, Article 1. The Arizona Department of Environmental quality has issued certificate of registration as wastewater collections operator, wastewater treatment plant operator, water distribution systems operator, and water treatment plant operators.

Wastewater Van

The WWTP consists of a head works with mechanical bar screen, grit chamber, an extended aeration oxidation ditch with two clarifiers in parallel, five unlined sludge drying beds, gas chlorination and de-chlorination. The facility has added six S.A.M. (submersible aerator mixers) to the oxidation ditch process. The operation processes septic tank sludge and return activated sludge (RAS). The decant water from the sludge is returned to the oxidation ditch. Sludge is disposed in a bermed active bio-solids unit on site. The effluent is discharged into the Pinal Creek/ Salt River Basin as per Environmental Protection Agency and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality standards.

We offer collection systems troubleshooting, locating, and services, [vector control, vacuum, jetting, sewer auger and video].
