Biological Augmentation

Bio-augmentation Solution for Municipal Wastewater Systems

Bio-augmentation or biological augmentation is the treatment of wastewater using microorganisms (bacteria).  These products contains a broad spectrum of microorganisms, micronutrients and bio-stimulants selected to break down the organic material such as: fats, oils, grease, starches, proteins and other substrates that can accumulate in lift stations, sludge tanks, ponds and thickeners.

Hawkins bio-augmentation products address 3 major problems: FOG (fats, oils and grease), Odors, Solids

The Key Issue: FOG buildup causes lift station problems, narrowing or blockage of sewer lines, noxious odors, and even foaming at the plant.  This can lead to higher and higher maintenance and operational costs.

Fats, oils and grease (FOG) build up is the leading cause of sewer blockages in the United States. These blockages can lead to backups into residential and commercial properties.  Effective FOG management in collection systems has many benefits  downstream to the plant and to city staff. Fewer callouts, less manual cleaning, and more effective treatment of wastewater at the plant.

The Solution: Hawkins’ total system approach will tailor a treatment plan for your unique needs.

The Benefits:
♦  Control grease and eliminate FOG buildup
♦  Produce an excellent effluent
♦  Reduce sludge build-up & improve settling
♦  Reduce the accumulation of unsightly deposits of grease and fat
♦  Increase efficiency and performance of collection systems
♦  Significantly reduce odor problems

Hawkins Total System Approach:
♦  Identify the source of the problem
♦  Design a plan tailored to your specific needs

Hawkins’ Products:
♦  Bacterial blocks
♦  Liquid bacteria
♦  Dry bacteria
♦  Jetting supplements
♦  Floating degreaser
♦  Liquid solvents
…and much more

Valuable Solutions

REDUCED PUMPING, JETTING, & CLEAN-OUT COSTS – Solids, Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG) can build up in lift stations and sewer lines which require physical removal from the system at a high cost.  Our biological treatment will digest solids and FOG preventing them from becoming problem causing buildups.

PREVENTS CORROSION & EQUIPMENT FAILURE – Solids and FOG buildup can cause failure of equipment. Additionally, they lead to production of H2S and biological acids that severely corrode mechanical and electrical components.  Hawkins’ Lift Station Treatment program will cause digestion of solids, FOG and organic acids while stopping H2S formation eliminates costs associated with corrosion and equipment failure.

IMPROVED SAFETY and FEWER ODOR COMPLAINTS – Complaints from the community and operator safety are prevalent issues in lift stations and force mains due to the formation of H2S and biological acids.  Digestion of organic acids and prevention of H2S results in improved human safety and less discomfort to the community.

AVOID COSTLY CHEMICAL TREATMENT – Common chemical treatments for odors, H2S and FOG are costly and require specialized equipment and labor to manage. Most importantly chemicals don’t address the issues; just push them downstream.  Supplying a solution that prevents challenges at the source before they form with reduced labor and no capital investment.



A Natural Solution – Cellular Bio-Activation Additive

Eliminate or Reduce:
• Hydrogen Sulfide Odors
• Hydrogen Sulfide Corrosion
• FOG Accumulation

Natural bio-cellular activator sewage additive product contains a blend of constituents. This microbial metabolic stimulant blend decreases hydrogen sulfide production and increases overall biodegradability in sewer collection systems.



Benefits to Municipalities
•   Cost reduction
•   Environmentally friendly
•   Personnel safety
•   Non toxic
•   Turn-key service or municipal directed

Collection System Benefits:
•   Eliminate or reduce hydrogen sulfide odor issues
•   Eliminate or reduce hydrogen sulfide corrosion issues
•   Eliminate or reduce fats, oils and grease accumulation

Down Stream Wastewater Treatment Plant Benefits:
•   Lower BOD loading due to less organics reaching WWTP
•   Increase plant throughput per unit time
•   Reduce sludge generated by WWTP
•   Decrease turbidity
•   Improve settle-ability
•   Improve plant operations

Cost Reduction Benefits:
•   Reduce or eliminate electricity and maintenance costs for bio-filters or scrubbers
•   Reduce or eliminate labor cost for manual lift station pump out and line jetting
•   Extend life of pumps and other metal parts

Reduce Your Sludge Removal Costs – Sludge Tank and Lagoon Treatment Program

SLUDGE is a costly by-product of all wastewater treatment facilities. For facilities equipped with sludge holding tanks, ponds or lagoons, we provide a solution to alleviate the challenges associated with their operation.

LOWER DISPOSAL COSTS – Whether hauling pressed or liquid sludge to landfill or land application, sludge disposal is a significant cost to you. Improved digestion and dewatering means less sludge to handle, haul and dispose of.

IMPROVED DEWATERING – Poor separation of water and solids during decanting and pressing leads to increase polymer usage, labor, and hauling costs.  Enhanced digestion produces more consistent sludge, improving dewatering while reducing polymer usage and labor.

REDUCED ODOR & H2S – Complaints from the community, corrosion and operator safety are prevalent issues with sludge pressing and sludge tanks due to H2S and odorous compounds released during transfer/pressing.  Through improved digestion our program inhibits production of odorous compounds and H2S and reduces complaints, safety issues and corrosion.

INCREASED CAPACITY – Poor dewatering, digestion and excess loading of sludge leads to a bottleneck for the WWTP in sludge handling.   The improvements in digestion and dewatering results in increased operational capacity of the sludge
tank/pond system.
