The City of Sumter, SC recently needed to remove to nearly 1000 cubic yards of sediment/debris/sludge from the bottom of a large aeration basin at their waste water treatment plant. It would take 2 weeks of vacuuming the dense sediment from the bottom of the basin and moving it to drying beds on site. The work was further complicated by the presence of 50 rows of aeration piping/apparatus that presented a "maze" at the bottom of the basin that had to be worked around and protected.
The crew led by Boston Pearson, including Elijah Bradley, Chris Bradley, Theo Wells, and Clifford Workman did an incredible job. They worked diligently over the course of the project, in inclement weather conditions and completed the project in 15 days, which given the nature of the work and the weather, speaks volumes of their combined effort.
The City representative was very happy with our work which should help us to be awarded the additional basins onsite that will need to be done over the next 1-2 years. Congrats to the whole division 33 team for a job well done.
