Hurricane Ivan
In 2004, Hurricane Ivan created a 16 foot tidal surge and flooding at this site. Within 36 hours, the facility was back operating at or near normal conditions. All major equipment was able to operate uninterrupted on standby power until electrical service was restored. Wastewater Superintendent, Ricky Hinote said, “After the Hurricane, all we had to do was remove the debris from the classifier and we were ready to go.”
