Water Treatment Plant

All of the concrete walls for the filters are now complete. Concrete is being cast for the new clarifiers and footings for the chemical unloading garage are being formed. The block for the new shallow intake portion of the plant have been installed on the back side of the existing plant and this addition is visible from the lake side. Electrical, mechanical, and plumbing contractors are working all around the plant to install miles of wiring, duct work and process piping. Here are a couple of photos showing the wall of steel being tied for the new clarifier basins and a photo of the south side of the building with the elevator shaft on the left side of the picture.

Lair Road Bridge

The existing home was removed in mid-September along with several trees. The boat navigation channel was closed on September 24th and will remain closed until May 2013. The contractor began driving past last friday. Here is a picture of the second pile being driven on September 28th.

The pile driving continued this morning. When the contractor is done, there will be 52 pipe piles each driven to a depth of approximately 100' which will suuport the new bridge and retaining wall. Below is a picture of the west abutment pile as they are being installed.
