Officials tasked with overseeing wastewater treatment at rest stops face many challenges. Sporadically dotting a state’s vast highway system, a facility manager may be responsible for rest stops hundreds of miles apart. The rest stop waste stream is typically characterized by fluctuating loads, high levels of inorganics and high-strength concentration. Since most rest stops are unmanned, engineers and facility managers shopping for a wastewater treatment system must also ensure that members of public cannot access or tamper with the equipment. Cloacina’s line of package wastewater treatment plants for rest stops include a cutting-edge controls package that allows multiple staff members to remotely access, monitor and make changes to the system via any device with an Internet connection. The system can be programmed to send alerts to multiple individuals via phone call, text or email when emergency conditions arise. Rest stop models include a self-cleaning headworks package that screens solids upstream of the wastewater treatment plant. Security concerns can be addressed through installations that include: Indoor, buried, partially-buried or above grade options, depending on the location and facility needs.
