Design and Construction Management Services to Improve a Water Treatment Plant
DCS was contracted to provide design and construction administration services for an existing WTP, constructing a 1.15 Million Gallons per Day (MGD) pre-stressed concrete Ground Storage Tank (GST) and installing new pipeline and gate valves. Alterations were also made to the booster pump system that feeds water to the distribution system, downsizing a pump to avoid the on-off cycles that cause premature wear, while also ensuring that the overall capacity remained unchanged to avoid re-permitting issues.
DCS also re-engineered the onsite drainage to resolve flooding concerns, and modified the existing piping onsite to maximize operational flexibility, navigating challenges while working around the existing underground infrastructure of the facility.
