Project Type: Packed Tower Aeration for Well 6
D&B Project Manager: Philip R. Sachs, P.E.
Project Cost: $1,527,000

Project Description

IMG767D&B provided engineering services for the design and construction of a packed tower aeration system at Well 6 in the Port Washington Water District. The system has a capacity of 500 gpm and was designed with expansion ability to address possible future increases in VOC concentrations.

The tower and all of the associated equipment is fully enclosed in the new structure. Due to the close proximity of the facility to a residential neighborhood, special attention was given to the architectural design as well as the landscaping design. The building was specifically designed to fit in with the neighborhood. The air intake and discharge louvers were directed away from the residential homes and equipped with sound attenuating features.

A preliminary design report and detailed design was prepared. The report and the detailed design were submitted to and approved by the Nassau County Department of Health (NCDH) for construction. Construction phase services included office services and field inspection services. Startup assistance was provided upon completion of the construction work. D&B assisted the District in obtaining approvals from NCDH for operation.
