Mr. Ben Newhouse, City Manager

In an effort to keep up with the current and anticipated future growth the City of Hurricane contracted with Randolph Engineering to provide renovation and upgrade design services of the existing vertical loop reactor waste water treatment plant.  The project would increase the maximum capacity of the plant from 3 MGD to 4.5 MGD.

Included in the project scope were the addition of two new aeration trains, one duel chamber digester, one new clarifier with plans for a second one as well as a complete renovation of the pretreatment facility.  In addition to the upgrade of these facilities, the project required new line work, electrical upgrades for the entire plant and general site upgrades.

Additional responsibilities involved preliminary studies, project permitting, coordination with various review and funding agencies as well as elected officials and the general public.
