The Goshen board of works approved funding yesterday for design work on upgrades for the city’s wastewater plant.
The one point four million dollars to Donahue and Associates will be used to design the upgrades to the plant. They will then be submitted for approval to the state department of environmental management. Then a request for bids on the work will go out.
The project will include upgrading raw sewage pumps, an addition to aeration basins, upgrading the secondary pump system and the boiler and the lagoon storage. It’ll also replace the collection system, two stations, and upgrade the control systems along Rock Run Creek.
Goshen Public Works Director Dustin Sailor says the huge project is being done all at once for a reason.
“Because of the effort that is takes to replace this large equipment it makes the most sense to join that work together and do it all at the same time.”
Sailor says they expect the entire process from now, to finished construction to take about three years.
