Large filtration project saves time, money for municipality

Pipeline sediment removed under tight deadline.

BACKGROUND

Work cleaning sediment from sewer lines under a university campus in the Northeastern U.S. needed to be completed before the fall semester began. Rain for Rent was selected by a Massachusetts water authority to provide the filtration and pumping system. The equipment for the project needed to fit within a small jobsite footprint and impact to student life had to be minimized.

OUTCOME

Rain for Rent’s filtration system efficently filtered approximately 14 million gallons of water, meeting independently tested water clarity standards before discharging into a nearby river. The system utilized a combination of sound attenuated pumps to reduce noise on campus, filter boxes, tanks, media and bag filters as well as Spillguards and traction mats.
