Solids Reduction Process for Wastewater Treatment

Big Bear Area Regional Wastewater Agency is breaking ground on a Cannibal solids reduction process. BBARWA's plant is located at 121 Palomino Drive, in Big Bear City, CA.

The most recent upgrade to the Treatment Plant which utilizes “cutting edge technology” to reduce the volume of sludge produced during the treatment process by 87%. With the current process the plant would generate on average 5800 tons per year over the next 20- years, which equates to 300 truck loads per year. The Cannibal process will reduce this amount to 700-tons per year, which equates to 40 truck loads per year over the next 20-years, thus reducing the amount of truck traffic on the mountain roads.

Saving Transportation Costs for Sludge Hauling and Disposal

Sludge hauling and disposal costs have increase approximately 65% over the past four years and not only have the costs increased but sludge disposal options are continuing to disappear. This process will help BBARWA stabilize the user fee by reducing the cost associated with sludge hauling and disposal. Without the process BBARWA would be spending in excess of $22 Million for sludge disposal over the next 20-years; with the Cannibal process BBARWA is projecting to spend less than $12 Million which equals a total savings of $10 Million over the next 20-years.
