KITOI BAY HATCHERY MAX SYSTEM
Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association needed a wastewater treatment solution for their Kitoi Bay Hatchery on Kodiak Island. The Hatchery consisted of several residential and bunkhouse buildings with existing septic tanks that shared a common marine outfall. It was determined that secondary and tertiary treatment would be needed to meet state wastewater standards.
A fourteen feet long AdvanTex MAX unit was selected to handle this task. The effluent from all the existing septic tanks (primary treatment) was gathered into one outfall pipe and the MAX was installed on the beach to intercept this flow. AdvanTex filter fabrics provided secondary treatment and a triple UV lamp handled tertiary treatment with the prefabricated units set into the slope of the beach. A new underwater outfall line was installed.
With telephone service to Kitoi Bay a future hope, a T-COM control panel was employed with a touch screen interface so the onsite operator can easily check the system.
The unit intercepts the effluent outfall line of the buildings.
UV lamps provide tertiary treatment as the wastewater exits the system.
Hinged lids open to provide easy access for maintenance. Spin nozzles spray the water in a square pattern across the top of the filter fabrics.
The control panel (the light gray panel on the left) is mounted to the side of a nearby shop building, within sight of the system.
The control panel opens to reveal the operator interface; dials and a touch screen menu.
