We are currently remodeling the Chemical Building at the Florence Water Treatment Plant. The building serves as step one of the water purification processes: storing, mixing, and distributing chemicals to purify water pulled in from the Missouri River. The project includes a new stair tower and new addition, as well as an almost complete gut and remodel of the building. All work is being performed while the facility remains fully operational, adding complexity. As of Summer 2021, we are ahead of schedule.
Past MUD projects include the Florence Water Treatment Plant itself and the Minne Lusa Pump Station. The Florence plant was upgraded in 2016 and entailed seven phases of work. We transformed the use of a buried electrical vault by adding a 400 sq foot masonry and structural steel structure to the top of the existing vault to house new electrical equipment. We also reworked an open-topped bypass channel into a closed-top water convince with traffic overhead, and four primary clarifier basin trusses and the associated equipment. The Minne Lusa Pump Station was upgraded in 2018 and included removal and replacing of exterior brick, reconstructing window openings and the main entrance, and replacing the metal roof. Due to its age, much of the work required custom solutions.
