Originally constructed in 1965 to treat an average daily flow of 1.5 million gallons of wastewater per day (later expanded to 4.8 million gallons of wastewater), the upgraded Peirce Island WWTP now handles a daily flow of up to 6.1 million gallons of wastewater. The treated wastewater effluent is discharged to the Piscataqua River through a 24 inch diameter single port outfall.
Penetron products were specified for the new concrete structures. The ready-mix supplier, added PENETRON ADMIX to about 17,000 yds3 of concrete mix, which was mostly used for the BAF building walls and foundation. PENETRON was also used to waterproof the tank walls of the WWTP.
