Boston, MA – Practical Applications, Inc. (PAI), a leading environmental company, has been awarded the contract to design and build the central wastewater treatment system for the new David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research At MIT. The system is designed to treat wastewater flows continuously at 215,000 GPD (gallons per day) with peak flows at 300 GPM (gallons per minute).

The system employs pH neutralization/pH adjustment to control wastewater generated from laboratory research activities. The system is designed to meet strict compliance discharge limits according to Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) sewer discharge regulations.
The system comprises two 2,200-Gallon treatment tanks followed by a corrosive duty pump station. The system incorporates PAI’s proven design and safety features including our transfer free DOT chemical dispensing stations for reagents and automated alarming/reporting systems.
