Explosion at Orem's Sewage Treatment Plant
Apr. 10, 2004
An explosion ripped through part of Orem's sewage treatment plant today, causing quite a bit of damage.
People were apparently doing some work outside the primary digester with a welder when a spark ignited methane inside the digester.
Bruce Chesnut Dir., Orem City Public Works: "IT BASICALLY IGNITED AND BLEW MOST OF THE ROOF RIGHT OFF THE DIGESTER."
The digester is a process that handles solid waste.
No one was hurt in the explosion.
Crews spent this afternoon assessing the damage.
They say it won't affect the city's ability to treat sewage.
