Water System Improvements
LOCATION: Corryton, Tennessee
- Steve Bostic
CONSTRUCTION COST: $2.5 Million
- 2 Storage Reservoirs
- Remote Telemetry Unit
- USDA-Rural Development Program
The overall improvements project for the North East Knox Utility District consisted of 2 new 1 million gallon water storage reservoirs, a new booster station, and the construction and installation of new water transmission line. One of the new storage reservoirs was constructed on Babelay Road, and the other reservoir was built on Terry Drive both were pre-stressed concrete. Additional tasks associated with the reservoirs included site grading, slope stabilization, and altitude valve pits and appurtenances. The reservoir on Babelay Road also required a concrete retaining wall, as well as 2,100 linear feet of 16-inch ductile iron pipe.
The new water booster station involved two 1,000 gpm vertical turbine pumps, installation of a new remote telemetry unit (RTU) control system including telemetry connection to a new water storage tank, and SCADA equipment and programming. LDA was also tasked with installing 6,200 linear feet of new 12-inch ductile iron water transmission line and appurtenances between the new booster station and new storage reservoir. The majority of the new line was installed outside of the right-of-way on private easements. A tie-in at the booster station was added, along with a 16-inch stub-out for connection to the new storage reservoir.
LDA provided design, services during construction, surveys and document preparation services, and property acquisitions.Back to Projects
