Digesters at 6 Orange County (Calif.) wastewater treatment plants needed drastic odor control rehabilitation. Repairs included epoxy patching to cracked domes, installation of a geomembrane liner inside and an insulation liner outside the dome and construction of a new mixing system to resist surface scum build-up. The insulation was flexible to bend with the temperature variance across the dome surface. Repairs extended digesters' lives by 30 years. Total repair cost: $5 million. Much saved over replacement cost of $18 million.
