Water Treatment Plant

Concrete is continuing to be placed with at least two pours a week. Generally, one pour of concrete is 50-75 cubic yards. The interior walls of the subgrade level have begun to take shape. Those of you who are able to visit the site can see quite a maze of walls in the clear well area.

At the end of January, Wells Concrete began production of the precast wall panels for the new WTP. Last week several of us visited Wells, MN and observed the process they use to construct precast walls and beams. I have attached a photo of one of the first ones to be completed. Wells will also be casting several double-tee beams for the roof of the new plant later this summer.
