Dropping water levels in all the City's wells caused Malakoff required design and construction of a new state of the art surface water treatment facility.

Our Solution

This project was undertaken to address a deficiency in water production capacity. A new surface water treatment plant with raw water pump station and pipeline was installed.

Improvements included an intake structure in the lake, a raw water pump station, 2 miles of 10” raw water force main, access road to the pump station, concrete clarifier, yard piping, three concrete gravity multi-media filters, filter transfer pumps, MIOX (brine generation of free chlorine) injection system, process monitors (turbidity, pH, chlorine, free chlorine), flow meters, headloss gauges, 600,000 gallon bolted galvanized steel ground storage tank, three high service pumps (one 40 HP and two 100 Hp), one 25 HP backwash pump, liquid chemical storage tanks with containment, office with lab and laboratory equipment, SCADA system, metal building, handicapped accessible sidewalks and office / restroom, liquid ammonium sulfate (LAS) injection for chloramines production, two concrete sludge lagoons, man proof chainlink fence, and site work.

The final cost of the WTP project was $1,626,324.70. The final cost for the raw water project was $524,064.70. The total construction cost for both projects was therefore $2,150,389.40.

This project was funded through a 75% grant / 25% loan from Rural Development and a $250,000 grant from TDA. The total project cost was $2,600,000.00.
