Our Firm is proud to serve many jurisdictions across the Southeast. The Firm continues to focus on “everything water” from the initial planning and regulatory steps through construction services, we maintain a focus on serving our clients.
Monroe Utilities, Georgia
The treatment facility has a capacity of 10 million gallons per day
(MGD) and is designed around an entirely new membrane filtration
system. The Monroe treatment plant conversion to membrane filtration
was the first permitted in the State of Georgia. The expansion included
the replacement of the existing sand filters with membrane filtration
units as well as extensive renovations and retrofitting of existing facilities.
The selection of membranes was based on extensive pilot studies
that verified superior water quality performance at comparable cost to
conventional treatment. The pilot studies verified successful treatment
of high turbidity water exceeding 300 NTU and effective removal of
metals, particularly iron and manganese.
Rock Hill, South Carolina
The Rock Hill Water Treatment Plant was originally constructed in 1946. Since 1954, Wiedeman and Singleton has been responsible for the
design and construction management of five major plant expansion/modification projects to the plant. The latest expansion will increase treatment
capacity from 24-MGD to 36-MGD to meet the needs of the rapidly growing community. The facility is designed for ultimate expansion
to 60-MGD as demand dictates. The project included air/water backwash filter renovations, construction of chemical feed facilities, piping
improvements, a new clearwell and upgrades to the existing facility, in addition to a 54-inch diameter raw watermain to assure adequate
Jackson County, Georgia
The Bear Creek Reservoir provides water supply to Athens-Clarke
County, Oconee County, Barrow County, and Jackson County. The
project will provide a dependable yield of 54-MGD to the water treatment
plant based on Bear Creek flows and diversion from the North
Oconee River. Wiedeman and Singleton in conjunction with Golder
Associates provided design services for the emergency spillway and principal
spillway/release structure for the regional reservoir that includes an
85-foot high dam. The 4.8 billion gallon capacity reservoir required decades
in the approval process and will serve the growing areas of Athens
and environs for generations to come.
The Dalton Utilities Wastewater Treatment System consists of three treatment plants and a land application site supplemented by water reuse
to a gas turbine power generating facility. The facilities are capable of processing nearly 100-MGD during peak conditions. The upgrade projects
involved rehabilitation and additions to the Riverbend Plant as well as a new 20-MGD Loopers Bend Treatment facility while maintaining
operations to treat existing waste loads. The projects were completed on a fast-track basis to comply with regulatory requirements. This
included commissioning facilities before contract completion to provide early operations and enhanced water quality. The project was completed
ahead of schedule for a cost under $100 million.
In conjunction with US Filter, the Design/Build project involved improvements
to the City of Cairo’s existing wastewater treatment plant.
The facility had been the focus of a Consent Order for land application
and other concerns. The US Filter and Wiedeman and Singleton Team
worked closely with City Officials to resolve regulatory issues based
on design and construction of new treatment facilities with a new NPDES
Permit for discharge to Parkers Mill Creek. The expanded plant
will have a permitted treatment capacity of 3.0-MGD on a maximum
monthly average and the hydraulic capacity of the plant is 8.0-MGD
with a stream discharge. In addition to rehabilitation and replacement
of major equipment, the project incorporates phosphorus removal, effluent
filtration and ultraviolet disinfection.
The Allen Creek Regional Sewerage Facilities were constructed to
extend sewer service to approximately 2,600 acres east of the City of
Gainesville in the vicinity of Monroe Drive. The 3.0-MGD pump station
has an ultimate capacity of nearly 5.0-MGD. The project included
the construction of new gravity sewers, a wastewater pump station,
force main, and enlarged downstream gravity sewers. As a result of
construction of these new wastewater collection facilities, the City was
able to abandon an existing pump station approaching the end of its
useful life as well as several segments of existing gravity sewers that
contributed an excessive amount of I&I into their collection system.
