The City of Wheaton was facing severe deterioration of the existing gravity filter in the water treatment plant. The under drain was leaking and the entire tank plus additional piping, valves and controls required rehabilitation.
The rehabilitation of the water treatment plant will include improvements to the gravity filter, process piping, chemical feed, and controls for the plant. The total project cost is $1,035,849.00 and will be funded through the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority (PFA) Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). The DWSRF is supported by federal capitalization grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state matching funds. These funds, together with PFA revenue bond proceeds, are used to make low interest loans to cities throughout the state for drinking water infrastructure projects.
Estimated savings for the City of Wheaton through the DWSRF are $174,267.00.
