For the City of Hannibal, Missouri, MECO Engineering completed the Mark Twain Area Restoration Projects in six phases. The project consisted of hiking and biking trails, overlooks, fountain, trailhead/welcome center, beautification, signage, and historical lighting.
MECO Engineering is the County Engineer for Marion County. Veterans Road project consisted of three phases of the North/South Connector Road and consisted of 3.24 miles of concrete roadway with asphalt shoulders. The Marion County Commission held a Groundbreaking Ceremony for Phase 3 November 7, 2005. A Ribbon cutting and dedication of Phase 3 was conducted November 12, 2007 to open the last phase of the roadway, providing a north-south connector route from Route W to Paris Gravel Road.
Howard County Regional Water Commission (HCRWC) members and guests celebrated as the Commission was honored at a ceremony in New Franklin to announce the award of USDA-RD funding for a water regionalization project. The Commission will receive a loan of $5,473,000 at 3.25 % and a grant of $5,036,781. Funds will be used to meet the costs of new wells, a new lime-softening water treatment plant to be constructed near New Franklin, a new water storage tower, and distribution lines to serve water customers of Fayette, New Franklin and Consolidated Water Supply District No. 1 of Howard County.
Project design is underway at this time. MECO President Kenneth L. Woods, PE is the Commission’s Engineer.
January 2013: A test well was drilled this month to obtain data for the final design of the production well and water treatment plant. This test well data determines expected capacity from the production well at the site and the degree of water treatment to make the finished water aesthetically pleasing and healthy for consumption.
The City of Pittsfield, Illinois undertook a major water system improvements project in 2009 to provide a safe and reliable drinking water supply to their community.
In order to meet state and federal standards for drinking water, the City realized the need to replace their existing surface water supply (lake), with a ground water supply provided through a new alluvial well field, including two 1,000 GPM wells, (approximately 95 feet), submersible pumps, elevated platforms, piping and electrical.
The new ground water supply is treated by a new 1,000 GPM Ion‐Exchange ground water softening plant. A new SCADA system links all systems and facilities to monitor and control the operations. A diesel‐powered emergency backup generator provides backup emergency power to the two new wells, and a diesel‐powered generator provides emergency power to fully operate the new water treatment plant during power outage events. New transmission mains transport raw water to the new plant for treatment. A new finished water main, connecting the plant to the existing distribution system, was constructed to deliver processed water supply to consumer.
The $9.5 million dollar project (multiple contracts) was completed May 20, 2011 when the water treatment plant officially went on‐line. The system improvements project provides the citizens of Pittsfield with a new safe and reliable drinking water supply.
