JOE REDINGTON JR./SR. SCHOOL WASILLA, ALASKA
The Joe Redington, Sr. Jr/Sr High School in Wasilla, Alaska school opened Fall 2015.
The 5,500 gallons per day septic system is an AdvanTex Treatment System composed of a 20,000 gallon steel single compartment processing tank with a 7,500 gallon steel recirculation tank and 2,000 gallon compartment for filtered effluent discharge. The system also uses three AX100 filter pods and a telemetry-enabled control panel.
This is the second time the Mat-Su Borough School District has chosen AdvanTex to reduce the footprint of onsite wastewater treatment for their rural schools.
Completing the piping between pods and tank risers. Next step is to spray urethane foam insulation and top coat around pod sides.
Preparing the pods for spray urethane insulation before backfill.
System is backfilled, ready for start-up inspection.
During Start-Up Inspection, pods are checked and water pressure calibrated for even distribution of wastewater from the tanks below. Each lid section has insulation enclosed within the fiberglass.
The School District Maintenance Crew specified 48” diameter tank risers to provide plenty of access to the system piping. Everything is designed to be reached from above so there’s no need to enter the tank.
At the completion of Start-Up Inspection, the system is closed and all hatches bolted for safety.
