Local 242 builds giant eggs in Washington. Pictured, l. to r., are: front row, Neal Davis, John Hess, Frank Maravilla, and Justin Reardon; and back row, Jeff Weger, Jeff Voss, Dan Thiessen, Kevin Baumann, Bob Bergan, Alex Burunov, Aaron Dirks, James Dennis, and Mark Keffeler.

Members of Local 242 (Spokane, Wash.) are working with CBI Services Inc. to build two 2.8-million-gallon, egg-shaped digesters — one of the most efficient and cost-effective anaerobic systems for sludge treatment. Their shape and liquid mixing system help reduce scum, grit build-ups, and dead zones. When completed at the end of the summer, the 89-foot-wide digesters will stand 112-feet tall along the banks of the Spokane River at the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility.
