After five and a half years, the $50 million Orange County Sanitation District Sludge Dewatering and Odor Control Project has reached substantial completion with zero recordables and zero lost time. The project involved the transition of the plant’s sludge dewatering system from belt presses to centrifuges and included the construction of an electrical distribution center and demolition of the old belt press facility.

While the new centrifuge system was exceptionally successful in drying sludge—saving OCSD approximately $14 million a year—the project was time-consuming and complex, with construction and demolition efforts occurring simultaneously, alongside and eventually involving the existing operational facility. Additionally, the site’s ocean-front location required the team to undergo extensive dewatering efforts.

Project Manager Tyler Lund attributes the outstanding safety record to a Shimmick’s commitment to safety and the project team’s collaborative relationship amongst crew members and management. Congratulations to the entire team for this monumental safety achievement and the successful completion of the project!
