Symbiont has been providing industrial and municipal wastewater engineering services since its founding in 1981. Over the past three decades, there has been significant evolution of the goals of wastewater treatment programs. We assisted industrial customers in complying with categorical standards, participated as publicly-owned treatment plants advanced from strictly secondary treatment to the early stages of nutrient control, and developed experience in planning and implementing long-term measures to control combined sewer overflows. Because of our work in these areas, Symbiont is nationally recognized for our expertise in the treatment of high-strength wastewater in the food, beverage, and dairy industries.

Looking forward, in addition to meeting established environmental limits, industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, facilities will focus on opportunities to generate revenue by recovering resources (e.g. phosphorus, nitrogen, etc.) and producing energy (e.g. heat and power). Future wastewater engineering services will concentrate on making facilities and their operations more sustainable, while simultaneously lowering operating costs.
