The City of Guymon

Year Submitted: 2003

Process: WasteWater Treatment

Industry: Government Agency-Includes Military

Wastes Reduced: Wastewater

Substance: Water

Location: Guymon OK

No. of employees: 9000



Description:

(Population of 9000) located in Panhandle of Oklahoma. When new industry moved into the city existing wastewater treatment facility was unable to maintain compliance with state and federal standards. Prior to this time the city used a mechanical treatment plant with 3 lagoons which discharged into the Beaver River.

P2 Application:

In 1995 Guymon constructed a new land application treatment facility. The new facility is environmentally sound and shows a stewardship of the land far beyond the more widely used mechanical aeration treatment and discharge system.

Environmental Benefits:

Meets discharge requirements. Conserves water, reusing it for irrigation while generating additional income for the city from cattle and crop production. Higher efficiency - 50% less energy consumption. Recycles methane gas, using it for steam production at local pork processing plant. Beneficial reuses of sludge (dried and incorporated as protein supplement hog feed.)

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

$65,000 from 320 acres in 1996.
