This new, 0.5 MGD Wastewater Treatment Plant on a 20.2 acre property consisted of screening, sequencing batch reactors, clarification, filtration, UV disinfection, post aeration, sludge holding, thickening and dewatering, plant drain pump station, chemical feed systems, a building rehabilitation, and electrical power distribution including standby generator, new SCADA system and two new lift stations. The Airport No. 1 Lift Station and Force Main consisted of replacement of pumps, starters and other equipment at the existing pump station and installation of 17,000 LF of a 12″ high density polyethylene pipe. Smithwick Creek Lift Station and Force Main consists of new submersible wastewater pump station and installation of approximately 15,000 LF of a 10″ high density polyethylene pipe, 2,300 LF of 24″ ductile iron pipe sanitary sewer and 1,300 LF of 8″ PVC sanitary sewer.
Reeves Young was chosen to upgrade an existing 5.0 MGD wastewater facility, which included multiple project components like constructing new splitter boxes, clarifiers, RAW/WAS pump station, and converting existing sequencing batch reactor (SBR) to an A2O sewage treatment process. The project also required retrofitting existing tertiary filters, replacing digester process equipment, an existing belt press, and chemical feed equipment, as well as removing the conventional activated sludge (CAS) process from service.
The main purpose of this project was to upgrade and improve the chemical systems at Clear Creek CSCF by replacing the four (4) NaCl (sodium hypochlorite) storage fiberglass tanks, replacing the pumps and piping systems to improve system process reliability, upgrading the Foxboro system, and rehabilitating the drum screens at Custer Avenue CSCF. Reeves Young also provided system wide flow monitoring improvements at various facilities including Clear Creek CSCF, North Avenue CSCF, Tanyard CSCF, WA WQCF, Cluster Avenue CSCF, Boulevard Regulator, and EA WQCF.
