Roaring Spring Municipal Authority, Blair County
The Roaring Spring project was undertaken to address Chesapeake Bay program requirements relating to nutrient discharges. The project included expansion and replacement of various components to the existing wastewater treatment facility, including a new headworks screening unit, automated system control, a cast-in-place equalization basin, an ultraviolet disinfection unit, improved sequencing batch reactor components, a building expansion, and an effluent pumping station.
The project also included the relocation of the existing effluent outfall via 11,000 LF of pressure and gravity transmission main.
We have worked with Keller Engineers for structural and civil engineering support on six projects over the past five years and have been very pleased with the results. Our projects tend to be complicated phased renovation/ addition projects calling for creativity in planning and construction. I have been particularity pleased with their responsiveness to issues that arise during construction which is of particular importance to us and our clients. Vern L.
