Water Treatment Plant for Mill Creek Water District, Quincy, Illinois
Mill Creek Water District planned for a new treatment plant on Illinois Route 57. The treatment plant consisted of a 1,500 square foot masonry block building with a metal roof. It was elevated above the 100 year flood elevation on the Mississippi River and was designed to provide basic delivery for well water. It was equipped with a pump station for delivery of the water to the Mill Creek Water District. Part of the project included a 500,000 gallon steel ground storage tank used as a clear well for the Treatment Plant.
The project required approximately 4.25 miles of transmission main and other associated work.
Major items of work include: construction of 40’ x 75’-4” masonry block building, installation of 2-split case pumps, 3-submersible pumps, and 1-vertical turbine pump along with process piping and controls.
The treatment plant and all related work was completed in 2011 for a cost of $1.1 million.
