Water Treatment Plant ImprovementsNortheast Knox Utility District
CCI provided design and construction administrative services for the NEKUD Water Treatment Plant Improvements project in Knoxville. The project included new installation of:
- 1-million gallon prestressed concrete storage tank (clearwell);
- 1 raw water vertical turbine pump rated at 3,000 gallons gpm at the existing raw water intake;
- High service pump station with a firm capacity of 4,800 gpm including 3 new high-service vertical turbine pumps rated at 2,400 gpm each and 1 new backwash vertical turbine pump rated at 3,500 gpm;
- All related piping, fittings, valves, electrical, controls, site work, paving, and other items as specified in contract documents.
The project required strict attention to existing conditions and continued operations of the water treatment facility. CCI also applied for a Clean Tennessee Energy Grant on behalf of NEKUD. The project was ultimately awarded a $150,000 grant to apply toward the purchase of high efficiency pumps with VFDs. CCI coordinated with the funding agency, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Office of Sustainable Practices throughout construction to ensure timely submittals of progress reports and reimbursement requests on behalf of the client.
