Project Title: Micro and Nanoplastic Removal at the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant (PLWWTP)

Many wastewater treatment plants in San Diego and California make efforts to remove micro and nanoplastics (MNPs) or have existing filtration processes that remove MNPs; however, the modified discharge requirements for the PLWWTP facilitates the discharge of MNPs into the ocean. Moreover, some treatment processes may be ineffective in removing MNPs or may even increase levels of MNPs in discharged wastewater. Thus, the team shall select and design an appropriate solution to cost-effectively reduce the discharge of MNPs.

The project goal is to connect High Street with Spring Street in the most cost and time efficient way. Our group of engineers at Alesia Associates came up with the following alternative: High Street will connect to the transit station at the same elevation and become an intersection. After that, the elevation differences are to be evened out through filling pit material and then building a road on top of the man-made soil. Finally, the intersection will then connect to the parking lot through a sloped down road.
