The Fox River Cleanup Project features eight of the world's largest membrane filter presses

 

Filter cake drops from one of the membrane filter press at the end of the processing cycle

   

 

   

Danger signs mark the dredges to keep recreational boaters clear of the work areas

 

Filter cake is stored inside the storage building prior to being trucked to the landfill

   

 

   

Sand is stored outside the Processing Facility prior to beneficial reuse. Project sand has been beneficially reused as part of the Highway 41 project in Brown County.

 

Sand samples are collected from the sand pad behind the Processing Facility for testing
