Due to Genesee County leaving GLWA’s water system, the existing pumps that served the communities west of Imlay City were larger than needed.
Our Design Build contract consisted of designing a new pumping unit capable of draining the water in the existing reservoir at the GLWA Imlay Pump Station every two days to maintain water quality and to provide demand capacity for the communities west of Imlay Pump Station. The new pump was also required to have the capabilities to drain the reservoir in the winter to prevent stagnation and poor water quality.
This Project also involves selective demolition, removal, transportation, and storage of the existing pumping unit and associated valves, electrical switchgear, and appurtenances, and disposal of the associated piping, concrete equipment bases and parts of the existing stairway and catwalk.
General Construction includes constructing the project in its entirety. This includes but is not limited to the installation, startup, testing, and training of major pieces of equipment (e.g.: pump, motor, valves, VFD, switchgear).
Key partners were: OHM, Ferndale Electric and Progressive Mechanical.
