Members of the wine, food processing and industrial communities are to be commended in their efforts to reduce their environmental footprint. They seek strategies to become greener in the use of raw materials, like water and energy, and in the discharge of by-products--such as carbon, heat, odor, salinity, dissolved solids and organics--which in the past were considered benign. As water becomes a scarcer resource, stakeholders are responding by developing sustainable policies based on effective water and wastewater usage strategies.


Many small-footprint, highly efficient forms of biological treatment processes are being implemented as the primary methods of wastewater treatment. These include bioreactors, clarification, sequencing batch reactors, membrane bioreactors, anaerobic treatment processes and fixed film bioreactors.

Operation and maintenance of these systems are much more involved when compared to traditional facultative wastewater treatment ponds.


Heritage Systems has the technical and hands-on expertise to provide full operations and maintenance services, from the start-up to ongoing operations, of these emerging wastewater treatment processes. We are also experienced in interacting with regulatory agencies and in providing testing, sampling and reporting services.
