Advancements in Wastewater Treatment Topic of Gonzales Rotary Meeting
Gonzales Rotarian, Tom Pertuit, was the speaker at the June 10 meeting of the Gonzales Rotary Club. Pertuit, an owner of Wastewater Treatment of Louisiana located in Geismar, gave an interesting overview of a new method for the design and installation of wastewater treatment wells. Pertuit noted that while his business continues to design, build, and install sewer treatment plants for neighborhoods, it has diversified to focus on larger projects for governmental entities such as East Baton Rouge Parish. Pertuit described how he conceived and developed a wastewater treatment well design and installation process that cuts the time of installation from approximately two weeks of the traditional Caisson Method to approximately two days. The new process begins with a new round design for treatment wells and the use of specialized drilling equipment utilizing bits conceived and designed by Pertuit.
