Over the last 50 years, industry has made substantial investments in their wastewater pre-treatment facilities, initially prompted by the Clean Water Act. These investments have significantly improved the quality of effluent discharged to surface water bodies or publicly owned treatment works, and as a result, improved our communities and environment.
Foth’s wastewater engineering and compliance experience spans a full range of industries including food processing, consumer packaged goods, pulp and paper, and mining. We provide services to 10 of the top 20 U.S. food and beverage companies. Foth brings together its Environmental Solutions, Production Solutions, and Infrastructure Solutions divisions to provide total wastewater management on projects like the following.
Using the right technology is a key consideration when planning for wastewater and often a combination of technologies provides the best solution. At the front end, Foth works to understand the unique characteristics of a facility’s wastewater to determine the treatment requirements and configure the right technologies to meet them while moving the project forward at the speed of manufacturing.
Foth’s 80 years of experience in the manufacturing sector allows us to understand our clients’ decision-making processes and capital expenditure cycles, providing a foundation from which we support clients’ expansion plans and ensure profitability now and in the coming years. Our engineers have a history of applying leading-edge technologies to the treatment of industrial wastewater management. Foth designed one of the first anaerobic contact processes at a slaughterhouse in Wisconsin and more recently, we designed a moving bed bioreactor to accommodate a doubling of organic waste load. The demand for inventive solutions such as these will only keep growing.
The need for water conservation and reuse, coupled with more rigorous effluent requirements, will continue to be priorities for manufacturers. Foth is committed to helping clients enhance their profitability by minimizing the amount of water they use, reducing the amount of wastewater their operations produce, and finding unique solutions to reuse wastewater.
