I'm searching for a simple design for the 'decanting' of sewer cleaning truck (Vactor) solids. We'd like to dump the Vactor solids onto a containment pad (similar to a concrete slab with curb & gutter around three sides), let the solids sit for a bit, while draining the liquid run-off into the headworks of our wastewater treatment plant. After the solids have dried, we'll scoop them up with a small loader and haul them off for landfill disposal. We generate approx. one load of solids per week, with each load totaling approx. 6 CY of which approx. 2 to 3 CY are (dewatered) solids.
Has anyone designed or used something like this?
Thanks in advance for the replies.
