VLA Water Plant Replacement

The existing water plant was installed in 1965 and is not compliant with regulations as well as having only one well, putting the plant at risk of not being able to provide water if the well fails. Proposed works include replacing the existing plant with a new communal treatment plant which would meet regulations and able to provide fire flow, and to provide a backup well for redundancy. The treatment process will be determined during detailed design, likely includes cartridge filtration, softening, MIEX, UV disinfection and chlorination and will comply with all regulations. The proposed building will be an at grade slab, wood frame building, brick exterior and metal roof. A chlorine contact pipe will be added to ensure contact time is met.
