Operating a blended and dry food ingredient production facility produces process wastewater as a byproduct of the production process. Prior to updates, process wastewater was pretreated (to below domestic strength), using an activated sludge process, before being sent to the local publicly owned treatment works (POTW) for further treatment. Segregated high strength wastewater and waste activated sludge were managed through land application…
In the beginning phases of a planned expansion of their cream cheese factory, our client in Shippensburg, PA, was faced with a significant list of restrictions and regulations for their wastewater treatment system.

From permitting and design through start-up and ongoing operations consulting, Probst has provided a full array of consulting and engineering services to Meister Cheese Company, LLC for the management of wastewater from their cheese company and whey processing facilities located in Muscoda, WI.
The mechanical wastewater treatment plant, located adjacent to Meister’s existing wastewater management system, incorporates a conventional activated sludge biological treatment system with an anoxic selector tank to promote phosphorus and nitrogen removal.
“Both the design project and the WWTP construction were completed on time and within budget. We continue to work with Probst on various other wastewater projects and expect to have a long, mutually beneficial relationship…” ~Scott Meister, President, Meister Cheese
Agropur (formerly Green Meadows Foods) in Iowa chose The Probst Group for the design of their new wastewater treatment plant based on our innovative solutions for managing wastewater in the food and beverage industry.
Our team was able to provide a comprehensive solution, including development of the basis of design for a greenfield factory, planning for treatment and disposal of wastewaters with a new surface water discharge, compliance with strict effluent limitations, and construction on an aggressive four-month schedule.
When Cadbury needed a unique solution for their wastewater treatment management, they turned to The Probst Group. The experience and innovative methods of the Probst team allowed us to provide a unique solution and design for their wastewater treatment needs in the highly populated and strictly regulated city of St. Louis.

From the establishment of the first greenfield factory to the operation of the wastewater treatment plant, we worked with DairiConcepts to plan, design, permit, construct, and commission the initial wastewater treatment and disposal facility in Portales, NM. Over the years, we have adapted these facilities to take advantage of the installed assets through multiple expansions, keeping up with factory growth and changes.
Originally designed with a lagoon and spray irrigation system in 1994, the WWTP now incorporates an 18 million gallon activated sludge pond system.
