Sanitary Sewer at Tulane Research Facility Enlarged

The Tulane Nation Primate Research Center retained the expertise of Stanley Consultants to review and analyze the capacity of the current sanitary sewer treatment plant, evaluate the system and make recommendations for alternatives to improve the existing facility as a temporary measure.

The Tulane National Primate Research Center, one of eight national primate research centers, works to develop treatments, diagnostics, and vaccines for emerging infectious diseases.

The Center has expanded significantly since it opened in 1964.  In 2010 alone, three additional buildings were added.   Over the years as the research campus expanded, the sanitary sewer treatment plant was modified to adjust to new loadings by adding oxidation ponds and a constructed wetlands. The original sewer treatment plant is still in operation however, the existing sanitary sewer collection and treatment plant is inadequate to accommodate the latest additions and future campus expansions.

The University retained the expertise of Stanley Consultants to review and analyze the capacity of the current system, evaluate the system and make recommendations for alternatives to improve the existing facility as a temporary measure.   Stanley Consultants is also evaluating the effectiveness of the constructed wetlands to determine what improvements can be made.

In conjunction with the Center's planners, we are working to determine the future growth of the campus and what impact the growth will have on the sanitary system over the next 10 years.  Recommendations on expanding the sanitary sewer system will be made based on estimated future growth.

Tulane is committed to sustainability and future plans for the sewer treatment plant include sustainable design and LEED certification.
