PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The project consisted of the design and construction of a new 2.0 MGD (expandable to 3.0 MGD) water treatment plant along the Tug Fork River in Naugatuck, WV.

The design of the plant included:

• Raw Water Intake Screens and Pump Station – Tug Fork (with potassium permanganate feed)

• Static Mixer/Chemical Feed Room – Delpac 2020, PAC to second stage of flocculator, polymer, soda ash (pH adjustment if necessary)

• Enhanced Coagulation/Flocculation – three stage flocculation with axial flow propeller mixers and variable frequency drives

• Sedimentation – Four hour retention time, chain and flight sludge collectors, and sludge screw conveyors

• Filtration – Four Roberts™ dual media filters, air/water simultaneous backwash, dynamic probes for evaluation of bed expansion to reduce mudball formation

• SCADA System – WTP – all operating equipment monitoring and alarms, sixteen (16) water storage tanks and fourteen (14) booster stations, (flow, suction/discharge pressures, and alarms)

This project was awarded a WV ACEC Silver Award for Engineering Excellence.
