PCWA’s new wa­ter treat­ment plant on sched­ule

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From press re­lease

The new Polk County Wa­ter Treat­ment Plant is on sched­ule and ex­pected to com­plete con­struc­tion in mid-sum­mer 2019.

The new plant, rated at 2.0 mil­lion gal­lon per day for distri­bu­tion, is mov­ing at a pace that will meet project tim­ing for fi­nal con­struc­tion sign off and test­ing.

The con­trac­tor P.F. Moon from West Point, and the Au­thor­ity’s en­gi­neer, Ron­nie Wood, show the con­struc­tion on pace for a JuneJuly com­ple­tion, as­sum­ing weather co­op­er­ates.

“All work thus far has been fin­ished as sched­uled and pres­sure test­ing for new pipe is com­plete. A great deal of the out­side work is fin­ished, es­pe­cially im­por­tant when win­ter weather is upon us,” said Jack Dam­ron, the Au­thor­ity’s Gen­eral Man­ager.

Since plans call for mod­u­lar in­stal­la­tion on many of the sys­tems and com­po­nents, one sec­tion of the con­struc­tion must be com­pleted be­fore the next can be­gin. This is done to con­serve both time and money.

The plant will be able to pro­duce 2 mil­lion gal­lons of treated wa­ter daily. Wa­ter will be pumped from nearby springs and treated at the plant for distri­bu­tion.
