300 S. 8th Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49009

Featured Project: Clemens Food Group - Wastewater Pre-Treatment Plant

Wastewater pre-treatment facility designed to process 1.5 MGD process water, with 30% water return to main processing plant for reuse.

A complex project… the simple facts:

 

The plant has a water storage capacity of 4,439,000 gallons, which includes 3,600 lf of underground piping

The pre-engineered metal building is 13,000 sf, incorporating 2” insulated metal wall and roof panels. It includes a 30x50’ waste container room, 30x35’ concrete equipment platform, 50x17’ blower room, 22x12’ office/lab and a 38x12’ control room

 

There’s 3,250,000 cf of air exchanged every hour, and 18,000 lf of process wiring

 

There were 3,500 cy of concrete poured, and 276 tons of rebar utilized throughout the project. This includes two 132x23’ aeration tanks, a 66x20’ influent buffer tank, a 33x20’ re-use water tank with concrete lid and a 24x17x17’ underground contact tank within the building, all completed with one continuous pour per tank.

 

The equipment  package was shipped from REDOX Water Technologies from the Netherlands on three cargo ships, which included 25 containers delivered to the jobsite in Coldwater, Michigan

L.D. Docsa self-performed 80% of the project from engineering and design assistance, site installation to a successful biological startup for a turn-key project.
