Vancouver-based Ostara helps protect precious water resources by changing the way cities around the world manage excess nutrients both in wastewater streams and due to fertilizer runoff. Ostara does this by removing polluting nutrients, such as phosphorus and nitrogen from municipal and industrial water streams. They are then able to transform these nutrients into a slow release, eco-friendly fertilizer. VersaGrade was contracted to perform the site work and utilities portion of the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility addition that incorporated the Ostara installation. The building itself, measuring 80′ x 26′, is 47′ tall. VersaGrade prepared the building pad, footings, and site concrete for this slab on grade structure. Utilities required for the Ostara installation included air, water, electrical, data, and centrate lines.
