Camden celebrates completion of wastewater treatment plant
WWTP - UV Lights
Ultraviolet (UV) lights glow from within the effluent facility, one of the last stops for treated wastewater at Camdens new plant before being discharged into the Wateree River. The UV system, developed by Wedeco, is said to be the most advanced in the world, making Camdens plant one of the most technologically advanced facilities in the world. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
About 50 people spent some time Nov. 13 to help the city of Camden celebrate the official grand opening of its new wastewater treatment plant. The plant, which cost around $35 million to build, actually began operating in late-February. The city chose to wait until late in the year to have a ribbon cutting ceremony and offer tours of the plant while it worked to drain the old plant’s remaining lagoon.
