A decant facility is a place for the city to dump the vactor truck, the street sweeper, and rinse out the garbage truck. This facility is set up with two bays that can capture the liquid and semi liquid waste out of the trucks and de-water the material in a way that is safe for the environment and make the left-over material easier for staff to handle and dispose.
The construction of a new stormwater decant facility is nearly complete. Stormwater drainage systems can contain above normal concentrations of contaminates such as dissolved heavy metals, heavy oil and gasoline. If left untreated, this sediment could result in contamination to the environment. The decant facility is in place to receive, process and dispose of those contaminates. Completion date Summer 2020.
