Water Treatment Plant Upgrades
Raton Filter Plant, Raton, New Mexico
EA was contracted by Raton Water Works (RWW) to design upgrades to the existing water treatment plant (WTP) in order to extend the facility usage by 15-20 years. EA prepared an Environmental Report and Preliminary Engineering Report per USDA standards to assist with the application for funding the project. EA developed the bid documents in accordance with USDA requirements, managed the bidding process, negotiated with the Contractor, and provided construction management, materials testing, and startup assistance—all while the plant continued to produce drinking water for the City of Raton. EA staff designed the structural, civil and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) improvements. EA subcontracted with Plummer Associates and Rivera Engineering for design of the process and HVAC improvements, respectively.
Water Treatment Backwash Pump Upgrades
Bellvue Water Treatment Plant, City of Greeley, Weld County, Colorado
The City of Greeley’s recent upgrade, and construction of a new filter plant building (TB1) at the Bellvue Water Treatment Plant, increased the demand for the filter backwash supply and backwash recovery systems. The increased demand requires a corresponding increase in the capacity of the system pumps. This project focuses on evaluating the system requirements, existing pumps, clear well and piping components capacities, and the ability to re-use components within the backwash system design. EA is working with the City of Greeley to select the preferred alternative. Then EA will develop a design for the new backwash supply and recovery system, along with construction drawings and specifications.
