​Project Description

This project will improve effluent discharge treatment by replacing the existing UV treatment system.  It will add backup generator power for UV system and final treatment to ensure NPDES discharge compliance.  It will also improve the discharge quality and provide for more effective maintenance capabilities on the headwork pump system.  It includes installation of a bypass valve to provide alternative flow route into the plant when failure occurs in the primary headwork rake system.

 This project was awarded to Big D's Construction of Tri-Cities and a notice to proceed was issued on June 26, 2017.  Big D's Construction is currently working on procurement of materials.  The City anticipates the contractor breaking ground early September.
