This project consists of the complete renovation of the existing WWTP and removal of the existing Third Avenue SPS. A new Raw Wastewater Pumping Station with Bar Screen, Headworks with Fine Screen and Grit Removal, Four Basin Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) using fine bubble aeration, Blower/Electrical Building, Effluent Pumping Station, Operations & Maintenance Building, Waste Sludge Building, and conversion of the existing Aeration Basins and Clarifiers to effluent flow equalization have been designed to upgrade the capacity of the WWTP to 4.0 Biological/15.0 MGD Peak. Permitting to allow the discharge of effluent flows above 5.5 MGD into the Tennessee River embayment using an existing force main which was abandoned in place was necessary to allow for the increase in capacity. A new 24-inch gravity sewer is being constructed in order to eliminate the existing Third Avenue SPS thereby allowing gravity flow to the new pumping station at the WWTP. This project is expected to be completed by late 2025 by Reeves Young at an approximate construction cost of $35 million.
