Bush Beans Process Water Reclamation Facility
Bush Beans

Bush Brothers & Company’s new Process Water Reclamation Facility (PWRF) is located in a rural location in the Great Smoky Mountains approximately 40 miles from Knoxville. The area has no public water utility; source water is obtained for processing needs from wells and springs near the PWRF. Following use and treatment, the vegetable wastewater is spray-irrigated over approximately 900 acres of owned property. Safety played a key role in success and as a result: after more than 300,000 hours of work, the project had zero lost-time incidents. This socially responsible project was delivered on time below the guaranteed maximum price and gives Bush Brothers greater sustainability and management over its water use.
