Contegra Construction Adds New Pump Station for Edwardsville Water Treatment Plant
EDWARDSVILLE, IL has completed a project that delivered a new high-service pump station to boost flow capacity to 9.6 million gallons per day (GPD) at the water treatment plant serving Edwardsville, Illinois. The project was valued at $2.3 million.
To accommodate potential future expansion Contegra built the new high-service station, which features five 200 horsepower vertical turbine, high-service pumps on a site adjoining the existing water treatment facility. It also converted a pump station on the site, which currently houses both high- and low-service units to an exclusive low-service pump facility; created a 20-foot-deep cast-in-place wet well; and installed new electrical service for the entire water treatment plant.
