Cape Girardeau Wastewater Treatment Facility

The City of Cape Girardeau was outgrowing the wastewater plant built in 1962, and due to sinkholes that developed in the area of the existing plant, expansion was not feasible. In July 2012, KCI was the low bidder on the new plant and began construction in August 2012 on the plant with capacity of 11 Million Gallons per Day during dry weather and 50 MGD during wet weather. The new facility includes a 40 foot deep Influent Pump Station, Screening and Grit Removal operations, and a 250 foot square Sequencing Batch Reactor, UV Disinfection, Sludge Storage and Processing facility, and Administration Building. The new plant also includes approximately 9,000 feet of 42-inch to 60-inch diameter influent and effluent sewer lines, and upon completion the existing plant will be decommissioned by KCI.
