Jerry Plott Water Treatment Plant
City of Tuscaloosa
12 MGD-- installing two new 24-inch ductile iron raw water lines uphill for a 125-foot change in elevation. Also installed were 7,242 linear feet of DIP, 320 linear feet of fabricated stainless steel pipe, 1,376 linear feet of RCP storm pipe, 492 linear feet of PVC yard pipe, 24,888 linear feet of small diameter piping, and 172,771 pounds of flanged DIP.
This project consisted of the construction of a new 12-million-gallon-per-day (MGD) membrane filtration water treatment plant. The structures included a raw water pump station, in-line mechanical mixers, a flocculation/sedimentation tank, high-rate clarification, sludge removal, flash mixers, an operations and administration building, microfiltration equipment, chemical feed systems, process piping, a 1-million-gallon clear well, a finished water pump station, a standby diesel generator, a prestressed backwash equalization tank, and electrical equipment and systems. The project also included installation of extensive security systems, a laboratory, a Pall Microza® microfiltration membrane system, tie-ins to existing 36- and 66-inch-diameter raw water mains, two 24-inch ductile iron raw water lines for a 125-foot uphill elevation, 7,242 linear feet of ductile iron pipe (DIP), 320 linear feet of fabricated stainless steel pipe, 1,376 linear feet of reinforced concrete storm pipe, 492 linear feet of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) yard pipe, 24,888 linear feet of small diameter piping, and 172,771 pounds of flanged DIP.
