LDA was retained by the City of Morristown to provide program management services relative to an Order issued by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. The Order has several parts which the program manager is responsible to see are met. The development and execution of the program on a defined schedule for Order compliance is the key task. As part of the role of program manager, LDA is responsible for coordinating the efforts of the team. The City uses a contract operator for operations of the treatment plant, pump stations, and industrial pre-treatment program, but the City operates the collection system with its own employees.
Currently, LDA has assessed all of the pump stations contributing to the City’s system and is designing SCADA and telemetry upgrades. There are approximately 28 pumping stations, sewer size 6-inch to 42-inch, which have been visited and rated by LDA in the past two years. LDA has prioritized design of the rehabilitation efforts associated with these stations. Upgrades to one station are under construction, designs are complete on two additional stations, and two more are still in the design phase. Additionally, LDA has completed the following activities:
- Identified issues at stations that required immediate attention
- Developed a client specific rating system for evaluating the pump stations
- Prepared a comprehensive report outlining the condition of each station with recommendations for upgrades
- Developed a replacement/upgrade schedule
