Shenandoah Water Treatment Facility

Project # 33437

North AmericaIAShenandoah

Shenandoah Water Treatment Facility

VERTEX was retained as the completion contractor to construct a water treatment facility located in Shenandoah, Iowa; a small town of approximately 5,000 residents. VERTEX had full-time project management staff of four on site, which included two project managers, a superintendent, and an engineer.

VERTEX was responsible for completion of the overall construction of the water treatment facility which includes all daily construction operations such as safety, management of the schedule, management of all subcontractors and vendors, and management of all project finances necessary to complete the contract.

The building was constructed to provide optimal performance in Water Efficiency, Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Air Quality, Innovation, Material & Resources, and Sustainability in order to achieve a LEED Certified accreditation. The building structure consisted of new composite cast-in-place concrete, precast manufactured panels, and concrete masonry units. This includes two exterior ground storage tanks with a storage capacity of over nine hundred thousand gallons. The water plants’ two million gallons per day capacity is attributed by four cast-in-place concrete filter tanks, two solid contact unit (SCU) tanks, two re-carb tanks, and a filter effluent box. These systems are made up of process piping, chemical piping, and storage rooms, pump rooms, aerator, soda ash feed, lime feed, mechanical and electrical rooms, and a 20-ton lime storage silo. All this is controlled by a state-of-the-art SCADA system that is designed so the water plant will operate independently and efficiently.
