In 1992, Coastal Engineering designed the first Bioclere I/A wastewater treatment plant in Massachusetts for a major supermarket chain.
David Michniewicz, P.E.: "From the outset, Coastal Engineering’s vision was to approach each project individually and use a process-based design as opposed to a standard product. Case in point, with this system we used two Biocleres in series. As each unit performs a different level of treatment (the first unit is a roughing filter, the second a polishing filter), different media was used in each filter. We are proud to say that this system has been running for 30 years now without major issues! In addition to environmental benefits, there are also financial benefits to the cleint: if wastewater of this strength was run on a conventional septic system, drain fields would have to be replaced often. This drain field hasn’t been touched, resulting in rapid return on investment and zero business interruption."
