Wastewater Treatment Facility Odor & Corrosion Control Project
The bids for this project were opened on August 7, 2012. Anderson Pacific Engineering Construction, Inc. was the low bidder at $412,025 and will be awarded the construction contract at the City Council’s Meeting of August 28, 2012.
Due to periodic excessive odors and ongoing corrosion of various wastewater treatment process concrete structures, it has become necessary to improve the current odor and corrosion control system at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Facility.
The City recently advertised for proposals from qualified engineering firms to identify measures that would cost-effectively reduce odors and prevent further concrete damage currently being caused by hydrogen sulfide gas. Two proposals were received, one from HDR Engineering Inc. and the other from RMC Engineering. In December 2011, Council awarded the design contract to HDR Engineering by Resolution 203-11.
HDR Engineering has now completed final design of the necessary improvements. The project includes physical modifications to the existing system that will separate and redirect portions of the existing ducting used to convey air that is odorous and corrosive to a new biological scrubber that will neutralize odors and corrosive gases.
