When the Village of Wrightstown needed to update their wastewater treatment plant, built in 1980, they needed a site plan to accommodate the new facility within a very tight footprint. The existing facility had to continue operating during the entire construction process. Our water and wastewater engineers and operations specialists designed the site plan to make the most of the existing space, and planned construction so that operations could continue as needed.
We managed the day-to-day construction operation, which included the staged construction of a new lift station, screening building, clarifier, ultraviolet disinfection building and the conversion of the existing clarifier into a sludge storage building. We also completed construction inspection of a new administration building, a new vehicle storage facility and all related underground piping. Operating costs will potentially be reduced as a result of our team’s direction on alternatives to do so. Finally, the hands-on training we conducted with the village staff prepared them to most effectively use the new facilities.
