Expansion of a Water Purification Plant

The Henry C. Garnett Water Purification Plant is a conventional water treatment facility that was expanded from a peaking capacity of 38 million gallons per day (mgd) to 72 mgd with the contracted annual production increasing from 25,000 to 53,000 acre-feet (af) during a 30-year ramp-up period. This project is scheduled to be completed during the month of May 2010.

Teaming up with Carollo Engineers and General Contractors SSC Construction, Bergelectric was responsible for all electrical and instrumentation for this massive expansion which included: Extension of the existing 5KV distribution system, large raw water intake pumps with stands alone Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s), addition of various new chemical and filtration treatment facilities, all while maintaining the existing plant in full operation. Also included were major upgrades to the plant control system with a new SCADA system and new instrumentation.
