|Lazenby continues work on sewer plant plans|
Lazenby & Associates is working on plans for a new treatment plant at the West Ouachita Industrial Park to send the specifics to the Ouachita Parish Police Jury for approval.
The West Monroe engineering firm was hired in November to draw up plans for the new wastewater treatment plant, which, if approved by the police jury, will be installed sometime in 2008.
However, the 50,000-gallon wastewater treatment plant will not be installed until two of the park's tenants -- Billhorn Bag and Southern Apparatus -- get their effluent discharge into compliance, according to Jason Thornhill with Lazenby & Associates.
Both companies are in the process of updating equipment to address the issue.
"Once their filters are installed, we'll get a lab to go out and sample effluent from both facilities to make sure they're in compliance with the pre-treatment ordinance," Thornhill said during the industrial park's advisory board meeting Monday.
Once these issues have been resolved, Thornhill said the new treatment plant could be installed within six months.
Lazenby & Associates believes that a 50,000-gallon plant will be enough to take care of the industrial park's immediate needs. The industrial park's plant currently treats about 20,000 gallons of wastewater per day.
If the industrial park grows and more capacity is needed, Thornhill said another 50,000-gallon plant could easily be added.
"Once the capacity (for the new plant) is met, we can add another 50,000-gallon plant in the future, which will give you a tremendous amount of growth potential from a sewer standpoint," Thornhill said. "If we ever fill that one up, we can continue adding as needed."
The industrial park's current treatment plant is more than 30 years old.
Daryel Hendrix, chairman of the industrial district board, said it would not be economically feasible to repair that plant.
The district may keep the older plant on-site to utilize in case there is an emergency in which the new plant would have to be shut down for repairs.
Lazenby & Associates also recommended installing a new plant over repairing the older one.
