M. B. Kahn Construction Co., Inc. Selected for Crooked Creek Water Reclamation Facility Improvements March 23, 2016
MONROE, N.C. (March 22, 2015) — Union County Public Works has selected M. B. Kahn Construction Co., Inc. for the replacement and improvement of the headworks system at the Crooked Creek Water Reclamation Facility, which was originally constructed in 1988 and upgraded in 1995. Construction is set to begin in May 2016, and the project is targeted for completion in May 2017.
Improvements will provide greater environmental benefits by equalizing water flow into the facility and preventing wastewater spills during heavy periods of rain.
The project consists of:
- Replacement of the existing aged headworks facility, which removes trash and debris from the flow to the plant and improves the downstream biological treatment process.
- Relocation and replacement of the existing influent pump station from Sardis Church Road into the plant property. This will increase ability to pump flow to the Crooked Creek Water Reclamation Facility and reduce potential for spills.
- Construction of a 3 million gallon aerated equalization basin to hold wastewater when it arrives too rapidly due to rainfall events.
