In an effort to supply higher quality finished water and increase water capacity the City of Luverne needed to rehabilitate Water Treatment Plant No. 2. The City selected TKDA to conduct filter media pilot tests, prepare plans and specifications and provide construction administration services for this rehabilitation project.
The project required the demolition of the existing concrete detention tank and the construction of a new prestressed concrete detention tank and a new well in the South well field. TKDA also assisted with the replacement of existing filter media, filter nozzles, air wash system and backwash water pump. The rehabilitation improvements allow the City water operators to provide higher quality finished water, triple the water plant capacity, reduce backwash requirements and eliminate the Potassium Permanaganate feed in the treatment process.
