The feature, entitled, “B.C. Winery Ferments Water”, discusses Tantalus Vineyards’ innovative sequencing batch reactor (SBR) wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Enviro-Stewards designed and helped commission process (clean) water treatment, wastewater treatment & reuse, and an air treatment “biofilter” to avoid odours at Tantalus’ winery.
Prior to the design of the WWTP, Enviro-Stewards lead a resource-conservation assessment to reduce upstream organic loading and water use. The reduction in organic loading and water usage resulting from the assessment allowed for a much smaller WWTP, which realized over $50,000 in capital cost savings as well as significantly reducing the footprint of the system.
