TOWN OF ESSEX WATER TREATMENT PLANT UPGRADE
LOCATION: TOWN OF ESSEX, NY
Project Description: The Town of Essex is located in Essex County in the State of New York. The Town operates a water treatment plant on the shores of Lake Champlain located at the eastern edge of Beggs Park. The existing facility, which was re-designed during the mid-1990’s, utilizes diatomaceous earth filters and disinfection using chlorine and a chlorine contact tank for treatment of surface water from Lake Champlain. Cedarwood Engineering Services, PLLC has been contracted to provide engineering services for the treatment plant upgrade to utilize two production wells located in the park, along with the option to supplement flows using surface water from Lake Champlain. The existing water treatment plant must be improved to allow for the treatment of the well and/or surface water to meet water demands and to comply with the Surface Water Treatment Rules and Disinfection Byproducts Rules. A small pre-packaged conventional treatment design is currently being pilot tested, with the advertisement for bids for construction proposed by the end of 2018 after regulatory approval of the design.
