Headworks Screens Replacement Project
USD Project Manager: Thomas Lam
Contractor: Kiewit Infrastructure West Co.
Awarded Contract Amount: $1,822,115
Estimated Completion Date: November 2020
The objective of this project is to replace the existing mechanical bar screens that have reached the end of their useful lives with new mechanical bar screens that will capture more debris, such as rags, plastics, and fibrous materials from the influent wastewater. The removal of debris from the influent wastewater as it enters the Alvarado Wastewater Treatment Plant will improve the downstream treatment process and reduce the wear of mechanical equipment and valves.
The project includes the demolition of one existing manual bar rack and two existing mechanical screens and installation of three new mechanical screens in the Headworks Building.
