YOKOSUKA, Japan— Facilities Engineering and Acquisition Division Camp Butler completed repairs and upgrades to the sewage treatment plant at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, July 10.

The $2.8 million project included new equipment to the downstream sewage process at the plant, improving its ability to handle rainwater inflow during heavy rain events.

"The instantaneous impact of these repairs means that Camp Butler will not have to pump down the sewage treatment tanks to prevent waste water overwhelming the plant every time it rains," said FEAD Camp Butler Director Lt. Cmdr. Brad Coleman. "The repairs and expansion of the treatment plant will save the government over a hundred thousand dollars each year in overtime for the shops employees and cost of contractor emergency service calls."

The plant remained operational while work was performed, with no disruption to base residents or personnel.

“This successful completion of this project resulted from the hard work, close cooperation and teamwork of Naval Facilities Engineering Command Far East and Marine Corps Base Camp Butler Facilities Engineering and Acquisition Division,” said U.S. Navy Capt. Michael Monreal, assistant chief of staff for Facilities, Marine Corps Installations Pacific. “It benefits the Marines and Sailors of Marine Corps Installation Command at Camp Hansen, as well as the III Marine Expeditionary Force units that train there."

The Camp Hansen plant was commissioned in 1982 and provides domestic wastewater treatment for Camp Hansen using a conventional activated sludge process. The plant is designed to treat a maximum flow of 652,000 gallons per day, enough to service the installation’s approximately 6,500 Marines.

"We strive for the best in installation support, and with the completion of this critical infrastructure project, we are able to better serve our customers,” said Plant Manager Paul Perry. “Hard work and careful planning have paid dividends here, allowing us to complete the project on schedule and on budget."

FEAD Camp Butler provides construction and service contracting support to nine Marine Corps camps and one Marine Corps air station at Okinawa, Japan.
