Office and Shop Building – LaPine Water District
Design and construction of an office and shop building was a small part of a $2.58 million project that also included a new 250,000-gallon reservoir, water supply, transmission, and distribution systems. The 1,952 sq ft structure incorporated office and meeting space, a shop with welding capacity, and a power generation system to provide emergency power to the pump station and office facility. Electrical consulting services were provided through HGE, Inc. (Richard Nored, PE).
Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements
A $1.4 million expansion of an existing three-cell to a four-cell lagoon system, and conversion to aerated treatment increased the facility’s total capacity to 250,000 gallons per day. The system was designed around LAS International’s Mark-V hybrid wind/electric powered aerators and includes a state of the art control system that can be remotely observed via internet connections. This was a $1.4 million phase of a $4.5 million wastewater collection and treatment master plan. Electrical design and construction administration services were provided through HGE, Inc.
