The community of Gold Beach, Oregon has approximately 2,250 residents. Wastewater is treated by a Sequencing Batch Reactor Plant, disinfected with Ultraviolet Disinfection, and then discharged to a series of subsurface drainfields located at the nearby airport.
The existing drainfields did not have the capacity for the peak wet weather flows and were experiencing effluent surfacing along with overflows discharged to a creek.
