2023 Wastewater Digest Project of the Year - Farmington, MO

December, 2023: ICS Group partner, PWTech, was featured for Wastewater Digest Magazines' Project of the Year.
Jaeger Aeration was the manufacturer selected to replace the failing aspirating aerators at the Farmington, Missouri facility. Maintenance of the aeration basins for the City of Farmington required the operators to use a johnboat prior to this $500,000 project to upgrade the basins with new blowers and aeration equipment.
Even more impressive is the estimated $80,000 in energy savings annually from the capital investment, meaning the return on investment is rather quick.
