WCS Bio-Shell Wastewater System Enables a Community in Harrison County West Virginia to Remain in Compliance
Salt Lake City, September 2, 2016 – A Harrison County community awarded WCS a large Bio-Shells system contract in August, 2016. Among other remediation options, including mechanical treatment systems, Bio-Shells were chosen based upon their proven performance, low capital and operating costs, and energy efficiency.
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) endorsed the patented Bio-Dome/Bio-Shell technology in 2012 by voting WCS the annual recipient of its coveted Innovative Technology Award for efficient reduction of nutrients from wastewater. The Bio-Dome/Bio-Shell is an aerated, submergible, bio-film reactor used to reduce various contaminants from water. This patented system is effective even in cold environments to help communities meet year round ammonia requirements.
The Harrison County community minimized its capital investment costs for the lagoon’s upgrade by choosing Bio-Shells, and will continue to enjoy monthly operating savings due to lower maintenance costs and energy savings compared to alternative solutions. WCS offers protection to its customers by providing a product warranty which includes a performance guarantee.
WCS (Wastewater Compliance Systems) was formed in 2008 to commercialize a patented Bio-Dome/Bio-Shell system. This system provides a large aerated surface and unique aeration pattern on a small footprint, accelerating the ability of beneficial bacteria to grow and breakdown undesirable pollutants to provide cleaner water. This system consumes minimum energy, requires little oversight, and offers a superior option compared to expensive mechanical treatment systems. Currently, the Bio-Dome system has been approved in many states, and operates successfully in communities around the United States and Canada.
