Construction Pictures

The picture on the right shows a helicopter lowering a phone pole into place to carry the upgraded power lines to the raw water intake pumps. The helicopter was used because the steep terrain made bringing the pole in by truck impossible. The picture below shows the view up the stairs from the raw water intake platform.


To the left, concrete is being poured to form the new settling and flocculation basins. Below, the basins have taken shape. Behind the basins you can see the main building before the filter gallery expansion.


Below are pictures of the filter gallery being expanded. On the left, excavation of the gallery. The middle picture shows the influent pipes being installed. The picture on the right shows a filtering component being installed.


These pictures are of the new clear wells being constructed.
