Client: City of Hickory, North Carolina
Status: Completed 2016
HMW provided design and construction administration services for a new pump station and force main to replace an aging and dilapidated pumping facility. The project was located in a residential area of the City’s service area. Capacity was increased to accommodate planned future growth in an adjacent county.
Design and construction considerations included installation of new pump station adjacent to the existing facility while keeping the old station in service. Also, utilizing the existing on-site standby generator for the new pump station was a goal achieved by the design. A Protective coating was installed on the interior of the wetwell to provide long term corrosion protection due to the presence of known hydrogen sulfide.
