The City of Hollywood currently maintains 290 miles of sewer collection system and a wastewater treatment plant rated at 48.75 million gallons per day. There had always been a long standing issue with hydrogen sulfide gas levels throughout the collection system and inside the treatment plant itself. Due to these high levels, degradation of the system due to corrosion was a major concern. Odor complaints were common practice throughout the city system. Most of the complaints, however, were generated from residents in close proximity to the wastewater treatment plant. Of utmost concern was the main trunk line entering the plant where levels of hydrogen sulfide were in excess of 1,000 parts per million. The manholes along the main artery to the plant had deteriorated to the point where major rehabilitation was necessary to avoid serious safety and environmental issues. Construction work had been delayed until a solution could be found to minimize this potential dangerous situation.
