The Madison County Water Department hired Constantine Engineering professionals for their Water System Improvement Project. This $9 million project consisted of an 8-million-gallons per day (MGD) water treatment plant (WTP) design, including well pumps, chemical addition and flocculation tanks, filters, further chemical treatment, finished water clearwell and finished water pumping. The project included an operations building housing the mixing facilities, flocculation basin, filters, and finished water pumps, and support facilities including the laboratory.
Constantine Engineering professionals were responsible for completing preliminary design tasks, assembling a design team of in-house personnel and sub-consultants, preparing the design documents, conducting the bid phase tasks, providing construction management, providing onsite construction observation, administering the project funds, and managing warranty period issues.
