City of Clemson Current Projects


The City of Clemson is embarking on a wastewater treatment plant expansion that will increase capacity at the Cochran Road wastewater treatment facility from 1.15 MGD to 2.0 MGD. This expansion is necessary to support the unprecedented commercial growth occurring in the City at this time and to maintain compliance with SCDHEC regulations. This project includes a new headworks structure for screening and grit removal, a new influent pump station, upgrades to the existing EQ basin, converting from a biological process to membrane bio-reactor (MBR) technology, new UV disinfection, a new post aeration basin, and a new effluent pump station. The expansion will also include all necessary instrumentation and controls. The total cost of all improvements to the Cochran Road treatment plant expansion, as outlined in the preliminary engineering report is $14.8 million.
