The City of Portland tasked the UP Capstone team, Team Feel the Berm, to explore alternatives to optimize the cleanings handling process and further develop one alternative for the Columbia Boulevard Wastewater Treatment Plant. The selected design dries cleanings by promoting drainage and applying low heat. In addition, the team's design adds overhead covering, odor control , and a pushing berm to simplify and improve facility operations and maintenance.
