Pretreatment facility at Utah manufacturing plant will help company increase production of yogurt

MWH, a provider of environmental engineering, construction and strategic consulting services, today announced that MWH Constructors was selected to design and build a multimillion dollar water pretreatment system for The Dannon Co. Inc., a cultured fresh dairy products company.

To accommodate future growth, Dannon is seeking to increase production at its West Jordan, Utah, location, which will pretreat the plant’s wastewater prior to discharge. This new pretreatment system will enable Dannon to significantly increase yogurt production capacity while limiting impact on the community’s infrastructure in a sustainable manner.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Dannon on this project that supports its focus of delivering high-quality, wholesome products to customers primarily in the western half of the country,” said Joseph D. Adams, president of MWH Constructors. “We look forward to delivering a pretreatment system at Dannon’s West Jordan facility using our industry-leading design-build expertise.”

The primary treatment to manage the wastewater will be a moving bed bioreactor combined with dissolved air flotation. The system comprises the pretreatment facility, odor control facilities, pumping, tanks, treatment and storage, and will be designed to meet discharge requirements while handling a flow of several hundred thousand gallons per day.
