The 7.5 MGD Water Treatment Plant project includes a preliminary and final engineering phase, and the construction and start-up phase. The engineering phase include analysis of treatment train alternatives, final design, development of formal specifications and estimates for the construction phase. The construction phase includes physical construction along with construction management and plant startup services. Analysis for abandoning and/or reuse of the existing water treatment plant will also be done as part of the engineering phases. The goals for the project include development of a reliable, simple, robust, energy efficient and expandable raw water treatment train and plant that will fully meet current and potential future regulatory requirements meant to serve the citizens of Ashland for the next 50+ years. This project expands upon and combines several prior biennium capital improvement projects.
HDR was the selected consultant to develop preliminary and final engineering documentation associated with the project. The project is currently in the preliminary engineering phase. Relevant documents are below.
