New Wastewater Treatment Plant Helps Bring Back Life to a Former Denim Plant


When Continental Dairy Facilities (CDF) procured a former denim manufacturing plant in Littlefield, TX, they turned to The Probst Group to evaluate the existing wastewater treatment evaporation ponds which were significantly worn and damaged. With plans to renovate the facility for dairy production, CDF needed a solution that would provide reliable, flexible, cost-effective, and energy efficient wastewater treatment and lead toward the goal of being able to utilize the clean effluent for local crop irrigation. The plant was projected to receive between 3 MM and 4.5 MM pounds per day of raw milk and convert it to milk powders and block butter, with long-term goals to more than triple their production in the future.
