Veolia has continuously operated the International Wastewater Treatment Plant for the federal International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) since 1996. The facility treats an average of 25 million gallons per day of wastewater from sources in Mexico, with treatment processes including advanced primary treatment, activated sludge secondary treatment, sludge thickening, and belt press dewatering. Control systems include a fully integrated SCADA and PLC network. Web-based operations and maintenance data management systems support day-to-day facility performance.
In addition to the treatment plant itself, the facilities include five ‘canyon collector’ structures that capture occasional surface runoff and two pumping stations that transmit collector flow to the treatment plant. The facility is staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week. At present, 26 Veolia staff members operate and maintain the treatment facilities.
Staff safety is critical to Veolia’s operation, and the treatment facility staff have achieved more than 10 years without a lost time incident. Maintenance of an active safety program is driven by a staff-based safety committee backed up by Veolia’s commitment to an industry-leading safety program.
