MONROE — The Water Resources Department is beginning construction work on a 15-million-gallon flow equalization basin at the City Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), according to the City of Monroe’s communications department.
The project is located adjacent to the WWTP at 775 Treeway Drive. This improvement project will allow the WWTP to handle fluctuating wastewater flows that enter the plant safely and efficiently and is imperative to the future economic growth and development of the City.
The project was designed by Hazen and Sawyer Engineering and City staff and underwent permitting with the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. Based on formal bidding of the project, the City awarded a contract in the amount of $5,017,532 to local contractor Dellinger Incorporated. The contract calls for the project to be completed in 390 days.
Project information and updates can be found on the City’s website at www.monroenc.org. Anyone with questions or concerns can call the City of Monroe Water Resources Department at (704) 282-4601.
