The City of Fort Dodge needed to provide crucial infrastructure to a new North Central Ag-Park.

The plan accounted for future wastewater loads generated by the City. An Antidegradation Alternative Analysis was completed to ID and evaluate different potential treatment improvements capable of meeting the proposed effluent limits.
