Oxidation Ditch Rotor #4 Repair:

On September 27, one of our oxidation ditch rotor shafts broke in half. The purpose of the rotor shaft is to support stainless steel paddles that mix and aerate the oxidation ditches. The oxidation ditches are where the wastewater treatment takes place. Fortunately, the failure occurred during the Big Bear Valley’s off-season and we can utilize another ditch that was out of service because of this slow time of year.

This rotor was 35 years old and has been in continuous service since 1978. Age and corrosion appear to have caused the failure of the shaft. The new shaft was replaced on January 28, 2014 at a cost of $65,000.
