Wastewater Design and Management

Jim Thorpe Area School District

Carbon County, PA 

F. X. Browne, Inc. designed a 200,000 gallon water supply system, which included an elevated water tower, and a 20,000 gallon per day tertiary treatment facility for the new Jim Thorpe Area School Districtís K-8 School located in Kidder Township, Carbon County, PA.The wastewater facility included a pump station and 3,000 linear feet of pressure and gravity sewer lines. Originally, we conducted soils testing and prepared the planning module and preliminary design for a 10,000 gpd spray irrigation system on the school property to serve the wastewater needs of the school. After discussions with the Township and the adjacent property owner, F. X. Browne, Inc. revised the planning module to include a tertiary treatment plant with a stream discharge to Dilldown Creek.
