About the Project

A major shipyard on the West Coast was having difficulty with meeting single digit part-per-billion levels for heavy metals in discharges of stormwater and hydrostatic relief water. Clear Creek conducted a low flow infield pilot test to screen applicable technologies and was awarded a design/build contract upon completion of a successful pilot test. 

Clear Creek provided full design and engineering services including hydraulic calculations, CAD drawings, electrical design and equipment specifications. Clear Creek worked closely with the shipyard staff to complete the treatment system installation and commissioning without interfering with the facility’s work. Clear Creek provided training for facility staff which covered system commissioning, startup/shutdown procedures, and routine system operations and maintenance.
