Wet Well Walls Complete
Last Friday the contractor completed the wet well walls. The pour took approximately 8 hours and used 250 cubic yards of concrete. The contractor has also started to waterproof the walls and backfill the structure. Dirt will be brought up to about 5 feet below the top of wall, which is where the foundation walls for the rest of the building will sit. The next step for the dry well and wet well is to begin pouring the interior beams that will support the floor structure for the electrical room.
On the Biological Treatment Structure, the contractor has completed 6 wall pour sections these past two weeks. The walls of the Biological Treatment structure will be completed around mid-November.
Excavation on the Headworks building has started. This building is where the wastewater will first enter to be screened before going to the Biological Treatment. This building will also hold the biosolids dewatering equipment. Biosolids from the Biological Treatment will be pumped to the Headworks Building where it will be dewatered and stored before it is dumped onto the Biosolids Storage Building.
