Featured Project: Jonesville Water Treatment Plant
Municipal Engineering designed an expansion for the Town of Jonesville’s water treatment plant (WTP) with capacity to be doubled from 0.5 MGD to 1 MGD by the use of Microsand Enhanced Flocculation (MEF).
The plant was 55 years old and most of the exterior concrete had deteriorated from undergoing an alkaline-silica reaction (ASR) including the high service line, flash mixer, flocculation and sedimentation basins. The completed project included a new high service line, interconnection pump station with bi-directional pumping, new SCADA and telemetry systems, hydraulic modeling and a GIS map of the Town’s water system.
To the extent possible, existing processes were upgraded and utilized in the design, including filters that were rerated to twice their original capacity.
The final design utilized Microsand Enhanced Flocculation (MEF) and flow-paced automatic dosing, the first stand-alone treatment system of this type in North Carolina.
The new WTP was online and certified in 2012.
RICHMOND COUNTY WATER TANK RAISING
Construction is complete on the raising of a 500,000 gallon water storage tank in Richmond County. This tank was raised 39 feet in order to reach the same elevation as two other tanks in the system and obtain additional head in this tank’s service area.
“We needed to elevate one of our tanks for pressure – they did it on time and under budget. The Woodies and Steve Gandy have been instrumental in all this. You can always get an immediate response. They have a quality staff that covers it from A to Z.” ~ Bryan Land, Richmond County Manager
