Lakewood, Ohio testing Actiflo technology to protect local waters

In partnership with the Ohio EPA, Lakewood, Ohio has started a pilot study to find a treatment solution to use during storms when flows exceed the sewage plant’s treatment capacity. Lakewood is testing Veolia Water Technologies Actiflo technology, which will quickly separates water and solids into a disposable sludge. This technology will allow Lakewood to treat wastewater much faster than usual, and could reduce overflows.
