Unicoi WTP and Watauga WTP – Hypochlorite Storage

W&S assisted the City of Johnson City with the installation of bulk sodium hypochlorite disinfection facilities at their Unicoi Water Treatment Plant (4.7 MGD) and Watauga Water Treatment Plant (24 MGD).  The chlorination systems at both water plants were converted from chlorine gas to sodium hypochlorite due to the increasing complications and regulatory requirements associated with chlorine gas systems. These two projects represent W&S’s first forays into 3D design, both in AutoCAD and Revit, and helped to lay the foundation for our innovative design methods which today allow us and our clients to see firsthand a glimpse at the final product before any physical foundations are poured.
