Casper City Council Approves New Wastewater Centrifuge Funds

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

An important upgrade will soon be installed at the city of Casper’s wastewater treatment facility.

Casper City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved just under $160,000 for a second centrifuge at the facility.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer says the additional centrifuge will let wastewater treatment workers take some strain off the facility’s existing unit, which has been in place for at least 30 years.

Meyer also says additional work may soon be coming to the facility in the not-too-distant future.

“Our population has grown enough to where we need a higher-tech, higher-volume centrifuge at that facility,” Meyer said. “This is probably just the start of the some of the money we’ll see being spent at our sewer treatment facility, because it has a lot of 30 or 35-year-old equipment in it.”

Meyer says the centrifuge plays a significant role in early sewer rejuvenation by initially separating solids from liquids.

City officials say the project will be funded through specifically earmarked State Loan and Investment Board funds.
