As the City of Fayette’s City Engineer, we were charged with the planning and design of a new elevated water tower to facilitate improved delivery of the potable water supply into the distribution system through increased storage capacity, improved flow, and stabilization of pressures. An immediate benefit was enhanced fire protection capability provided by the additional storage and operability of the system. The 500,000 Gallon Single Pedestal Storage Tank was located to provide the best meet the needs of the area served by the new tank. Hydraulic calculations proved the tank would provide optimum functionality at this location, floating with the city’s existing elevated tanks, and improving pressures and flows within the system.
Bob’s Creek Waste Water Plant sewer collection and wastewater treatment project was located in Winfield, Missouri in Lincoln County. This project included the design/construction of a new force main system to connect the existing system and new customers to a new wastewater treatment plant. MECO Engineering developed a Facility Plan, Survey, Engineering Design, Structural, MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing) including HVAC, motor control center/SCADA, Plans, Specifications, Cost Estimates, Bidding and Award Phase Coordination & Assistance, Project Coordination, Project Management, Construction Management, Construction Observation, and Contract Administration.
This state of the art 1.5 MGD Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) wastewater treatment plant is under roof (except for headworks) and includes the filter room, offices, chemical laboratory, pump room, and motor control center. MECO prepared the Preliminary Engineering Report and Facility Plan for this project which was the basis of the design plan for the new facility. MECO provided engineering and technical assistance to the District for their direct purchase of equipment for the new plant.
This portion of the project included construction of 5,020 LF 10” SDR; 7,800 LF 8” SDR; and 19,050 LF 6” SDR; one new duplex submersible pump station with stand‐by dieselpowered generator. MECO personnel provided assistance to the District with the acquisition of permanent easements for the sanitary sewer collection system.
The original sewer district was formed in May 1998 with the construction of a force main system and three‐cell facultative wastewater treatment lagoon, providing service to 358 connections. With the construction of the new system and MBR treatment plant, the District has expanded to provide service to nearly 2,000 customers.
