Wastewater Operations

At SEH, we’re committed to creating wastewater treatment facility designs with your operations and operators in mind.

Operations Consulting
SEH is committed to creating wastewater treatment facility designs with the system operators in mind. In the preliminary design stage, our operations experts will meet with plant operations staff to discuss how the desired improvements are proposed to fit with, and provide benefit to, your facility’s unit processes and operations.

During construction, we will review the work in progress with your operations staff to discuss the system’s operation – from the inside out. When it comes time for system startup, our expert staff will be there to instruct your operations staff on the proper use and maintenance of the systems and equipment. Operations consulting services include:

  • Plant startup assistance
  • Laboratory programs and certification assistance
  • Sludge management programs
  • Operations and maintenance manuals
  • Operator training
  • Computerized reporting
