Project Budget: $80,905,000

Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Improvements
Provides additional measures of protection for the pretreatment and mitigation of the effects of harmful algal blooms (HABs) within Lake Erie to further protect the City’s drinking water supply. Work includes upgrades to potassium permanganate and powder activated carbon feed systems at the Low Service Pump Station, and the addition of powder activated carbon storage and feed systems, new ozonation facilities, and filter upgrades at the Collins Park Water Treatment Plant. The project will be completed in three phases with the initial chemical feed work at Low Service and Collins Park completed in 2015, the ozonation project in 2020, and filter upgrades to follow.
Status Phase 1: Completed

Status Phase 2: Under Construction

Estimated Completion: 2020

Status Phase 3: Under Construction

Estimated Completion: 2023

Project Cost, Phase 1: $5,670,000

Project Budget, Phase 2: $53,000,000

Project Budget, Phase 3: $54,999,000

New Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System
(Facilities replacement, upgrades and modernization)
Work included replacement of the supervisory control and data acquisition system (computer monitoring and control system) for the water treatment plant and outlying pumping stations. Included the integration of new telemetry and technology upgrades to significantly improve the accuracy, reliability and safety of water plant processes. The new SCADA and telemetry systems enables the staff to obtain real-time data to adjust treatment processes in response to variations in raw water quality and flow demands. The new system also allows remote monitoring and control of pumping facilities to improve system efficiencies.
Status:
Completed

Project Cost: $7,736,000

Flocculation, Sedimentation and Filter Addition – Basin 7
(Water quality, redundancy and new buildings)
The additional basin will enable the water treatment plant to retain full plant capacity while other portions of the facility are removed from service for repairs and major refurbishment. Work includes new 20-MGD plant addition including a flocculation basin, sedimentation basin, recarbonation basin and rapid sand filters, piping, structures and chemical feed facilities.
Status:
Under Construction

Estimated Completion: 2020

Project Budget: $37,050,000

Flocculation, Sedimentation and Filter Addition – Basin 8
(Water quality redundancy and new buildings)
The additional basin will enable the water treatment plant to meet maximum system demands exceeding the existing plant capacity of 120 MGD. Work includes new 20-MGD plant addition including a flocculation basin, sedimentation basin, recarbonation basin and rapid sand filters, piping, structures and chemical feed facilities.
Status:
Under Construction

Estimated Completion: 2020

Project Budget: $32,940,000

Administration/ Maintenance Building Facilities and Property Acquisition (Facilities Replacement, Upgrades and Modernization)
The expansion allows for more efficient administrative and maintenance operations. Work includes property acquisition, a new maintenance building for improved maintenance work areas and stockroom, replacement of roofing materials over the chemical and administration building areas, and reconfiguration of existing building space for Treatment administrative and engineering staff.
Status:
Completed

Project Cost: $16,786,000

Plant-Wide Power Improvements
(Facilities replacement, upgrades and modernization)
The new power system upgrades existing power supply to the water treatment plant, adds a redundant power distribution system within the plant for improved reliability, increases capacity within the system for planned improvements, and improves safety for operations. Work includes electrical equipment replacements, new plant substation, high service pumping station switchgear, transformers, and plant power loop.
Status:
Completed

Project Cost: $30,150,000

Low Service Pump Station Improvements (Facilities Replacement, Upgrades and Modernization)
The project restores an essential facility that pumps raw water from Lake Erie to the Collins Park Plant for treatment. Work that significantly improves the long-term efficiency and reliability of the station includes a new electrical substation, switchgear, pump motors and standby generators; restoration of building masonry, pumps and related piping systems; new HVAC systems and security upgrades.
Status:
Completed

Project Cost: $38,103,000

Clearwell and Treated Water Conduit Improvements
(Facilities replacement, upgrades and modernization)
Inspection and repairs to structures and control gates to maintain the integrity of treated water prior to entering the water distribution system. Work includes dive inspections and structural repairs of the treated water conduits, junction chambers, east and west clearwells, high service pump suction wells and related sluice gates.
Status Phase 1: Completed

Status Phase 2: Future Project

Project Cost, Phase 1: $1,600,000

Project Budget, Phase 2: $900,000

Filter and Pipe Gallery Improvements
(Facilities replacement, upgrades and modernization)
The project will refurbish the existing system that conveys water to and from the rapid sand filters, which are an essential component of the treatment process. Work includes rebuild of the existing filters to convert to biologically active filters with sand and granular activated carbon media. The filter improvements are designed to provide the third barrier for the treatment of harmful algal bloom toxins. The project also includes replacement of the filter and backwash supply piping, along with replacement of valves and actuators for each of the 30 filters in the plant.
Status:
Design

Estimated Completion: 2023

Project Budget: $54,999,000
