By using clarifiers to upgrade a waste treatment plant, Camp Dresser & McKee were able to utilize the available space so that an historic building existing within the plant could remain.

Once parallel flow clarifiers were selected, Camp Dresser & McKee incorporated various methods to improve operations management and cut costs.
