Wastewater Treatment Plant Maintenance and Evaluation Services

Optimize plant operation while minimizing system downtime and long-term replacement costs.


Wastewater treatment plants are some of the most challenging environments due to the aggressive nature of the material treated.

Organic matter, bacteria, suspended solids, aggressive gases, etc., present difficult challenges for treatment facilities, pipelines, and pumping stations. Steel and concrete assets in these facilities are subject to harsh conditions.

  • The usual long-term threats to reinforced concrete are carbon dioxide, acid, and freeze-thaw cycles.
  • Turbulent flows and suspended solids can cause abrasion and erosion.
  • High sulfate levels and biogenically induced acid create aggressive environments.

The treatment process can lead to rapid deterioration of concrete surfaces and corrosion of concrete reinforcement and steel structures.

Our Solution

USG provides a wide range of assessment and maintenance services to ensure efficient, safe, and continuous protection of your treatment plant assets. Our solutions help extend the service life of your treatment facility infrastructure while minimizing maintenance downtime and reducing long-term replacement costs. Not only do we solve the problems technically, but we also ease the burden financially.

We restore treatment plant assets to their design specifications and protect them with high-performance coating and lining systems for long-term viability. Each step in wastewater treatment requires a specific approach. Our repair, protection, cleaning, and rehabilitation solutions are custom-tailored to the chemical and mechanical aggressiveness of each system’s process.

How we do it

Our experts work with the treatment plant owner to develop a comprehensive condition assessment based on each asset within the facility. Cracks, surface defects, spalling, or any other sign of concrete or steel distress are recorded along with relevant information on the asset itself (physical exposure, chemical exposure, temperature conditions, etc.). If necessary, samples are collected to conduct additional tests before developing a repair specification.

Our in-house experts can assist you in developing a rehabilitation solution tailored to your system’s specific needs and requirements. Whether it is concrete rebar, a structural component of a clarifier, or any other treatment plant asset, our experienced field crews can clean, repair, and prep all asset surfaces and apply specific high-performance coatings and linings for long-term protection.

USG experts can recommend upgrades and ancillary services (e.g., denitrification, blowers, aeration basins, lighting, etc.) to improve your treatment plant operations.

USG also offers a one-of-a-kind Treatment Plant Asset Management Program. This innovative program is a turnkey proposal with a single-source responsibility for all scopes and trades. We rehabilitate wastewater treatment plant assets to fit-for-purpose conditions and provide routine maintenance and lifetime protective coating warranties to keep assets operational for the long term. The annual cost of the USG Asset Management Program is pre-determined for easy budgeting and includes future repairs, so you do not have to worry about large expenditures for crisis management. We can also recommend upgrades or additional services to optimize the operation of your treatment plant and generate savings.
