    This was a renovation and addition to an existing waste water plant to increase capacity from 13 MGD to 17.9 MGD.

Located in south St. Cloud, the facility is designed to treat an average flow of 13 million gallons per day generated from a population of over 99,400 people. It services the area communities including St. Augusta, St. Joseph, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, and Waite Park. The facility uses a biological nutrient removal process (BNR) to remove a very high level of nitrogen and phosphorus from the wastewater. Knutson added four new secondary clarifiers and refurbished the existing basins and secondary clarifiers to align with the new BNR process.
