Artistic Stoneworks

Partnership Helps Company Meet EPA Requirements

Artistic Stoneworks is a full service Kitchen and Bath Company serving Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Santa Rosa Beach, Okaloosa County, Walton County, and the entire 30-A corridor since 2003.  FloridaMakes partnered with the University of West Florida’s (UWF's) engineering department to support Artistic Stone Works with planning and implementing a slurry biodegradation system to capture and eliminate water contamination. In a slurry biodegradation system, an aqueous slurry is created by combining soil or sludge with water. This slurry is then biodegraded aerobically using a self-contained reactor or in a lined lagoon. A three-step precipitation process was developed to reduce the stone slurry discharge of the company’s wastewater. The first 2 precipitation steps eliminate 90% of the stone slurry from the wastewater and the final treatment is a biodegradation process. This eliminated the potential issue with the contaminated water run-off hazard to meet EPA requirements.
