Water Treatment Plant Upgrade
Shepherdstown WTP PIPE
Shepherdstown Filter
In 2020, Ghosh Engineers updated the Water Source Protection Plan for Shepherdstown. As part of this plan, an alternate raw water source (Town Run) was identified to be utilized as a secondary source for the water treatment plant. The challenge of this design was to maximize limited space in the existing treatment facility to incorporate the new treatment components along with making needed improvements while maintaining uninterrupted water service. Ghosh Engineers’ provided design services to upgrade the existing 800 GPM water treatment plant consisting of a new 800 GPM raw water pump station on Town Run; replace the existing raw water pumps and controls; remove and replace filter media, valves and controls; new sludge removal equipment in the existing Pre-Sedimentation basin; UV disinfection; and upgrade the SCADA system. The design phase services are complete. Ghosh worked with the Owner to secure funding for this project and will provide bidding and construction services.
