Water Recovery, LLC
(WRI)'s facility is designed to meet EPA's stringent Centralized
Waste Treatment (CWT) standards. Located in downtown
Jacksonville, Florida, near Everbank Field, the WRI plant employs
the latest CWT technologies to treat nonhazardous wastewater and
used oils. With our state-of-the-art facility, WRI offers the
flexibility to custom design a waste treatment process for
individual client materials. These specialized processes require a
high level of expertise and constant monitoring to ensure the
quality of our effluent and the delivery of "best in class" service
to our valued clients.
- Free and emulsified oil/water separation
- Chemical precipitation for metals removal
- Chemical oxidation of organic compounds
- Heat treatment and emulsion breaking for used oil
- Destruction of cyanide
- Sludge dewatering
- Reduction of hexavalent chromium
Key elements of our facility include:
- Waste approval and acceptance testing are performed in our
- Process control and pre-compliance metals samples are analyzed
on-site using our Spectro Genesis simultaneous ICP
(Inductively Coupled Plasma)
- Five high-volume off-load pumps allow for a gate to
gate time of less than 60 minutes!
- Eleven 7,000 gallon, cone-bottom batch tanks.
These tanks allow WRI to tailor treatment to a specific batch of
wastewater. WRI can perform any number of chemical treatments in
these tanks including emulsion breaking, metals precipitation,
chromium reduction, and cyanide destruction.
- After batch pretreatment (if necessary), all of the wastewater
that will be processed in our continuous system is collected in a
new 50,000-gallon equalization tank. This added
equalization allows for greater control over dosage and pH. This
allows WRI to use less treatment chemical and generates less
- An API oil/water separator separates free oil
- A dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit performs
continuous chemical precipitation and solids removal.
- Treated wastewater is collected in a 50,000-gallon
discharge tank to be tested for regulatory compliance and
certifications prior to discharge
- All of the oil removed in wastewater treatment as well as used
oil accepted directly, are treated in our used oil recovery
system. This process uses both thermal and chemical
methods to remove contaminants from the waste oil.
- Sludge dewatering is performed in our plate-and-frame
filter press. The filter cake is disposed of as
nonhazardous waste and the filtrate is returned to the
