Wastewater Piping Improvements for BSL 3 Laboratories

Building 156 is a Wastewater Pre-Treatment Plant where wastewater from site buildings with animal waste and BSL-3 laboratory waste are heat pre-treated prior to discharge to the City of Ames municipal sanitary system. Each Animal & Laboratory has an independent wastewater pumping system to collect wastewater and pump to the plant. GES was tasked with re-configuring the waste water supply piping system to reduce potential for cross-contamination of wastewater between buildings.
