Simmons Foods, Inc. Southwest City, Missouri Wastewater Treatment Plant

Simmons Foods, Inc., Siloam Springs, Arkansas

In early,1998 rowenvironmental was retained by Simmons Foods to evaluate and make recommendations to upgrade the corporation’s Southwest City, Missouri processing and rendering plant wastewater system.  An evaluation of the existing system was completed in one week and the design of improvements was fast tracked to address an immediate need to upgrade the system.  The system was upgraded to provide increased nitrogen and phosphorus removal through the addition of an innovative biological treatment unit.  The system has performed exceptionally well since completion, with effluent phosphorus levels averaging well below 1 mg/l.

Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation Walker Creek Facility, Camp County, Texas

Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation, Pittsburg, Texas

Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation retained rowenvironmental to assist in the planning, permitting, and design for a new poultry processing and rendering facility.  The facility will be unique in that wastewater will be managed by deep well injection, thus having no direct discharge to the environmental.  A major important aspect of the overall project development was the development and negotiation of a Comprehensive Water Quality Management Plan with the Northeast Texas Municipal Water District, the agency responsible for water quality management in the drainage basin.  Though this plan the industry and the water district agreed to work together to protect water quality in the basin by monitoring and through implementation of best management practices.  The project will ultimately result in the creation of over 5,000 jobs while having no negative impacts on the environment.
